Lane Garrison's lawyer said today that his client will not be charged with felony domestic violence for allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly.
Harland Braun says he spoke with the D.A. Tuesday and was told prosecutors don't have sufficient evidence right now to file a case against Garrison.
That could change, however, as the investigation continues. Lane's case remains under review and charges stemming from his arrest still could be filed.
There's also the matter of Garrison's 2007 DUI-manslaughter conviction.
Braun he is getting in touch with the parole board to see if the department will take action against the former Prison Break star for his role in this case.
Even though he hasn't been charged with domestic violence, Lane is currently under a parole hold in Beverly Hills jail while that matter is addressed.
Lane's former girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly, claims he attacked her Saturday night and says the surveillance video shows the alleged attack go down.
Braun says the surveillance video is deceiving and it actually does NOT show Lane striking Ashley, but merely trying to grab his phone back from her.
Braun says he believes his client was convincing when he spoke with Beverly Hills police detectives, and that's why no immediate charges have been filed.
The two definitely got into it in a bad way, but establishing whether a clear assault took place during the melee is a different story. Stay tuned.
