Ryan Dunn -- Beer and Shots Before Crash

6/20/2011 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn spent four hours in a Philadelphia-area bar before he got behind the wheel of his Porsche 911 this morning ... drinking at least 3 beers and 3 shots ... TMZ has learned.

Ryan Dunn

Dunn arrived to a bar called Barnaby's of America in West Chester, PA around 10:30 PM ... to hang out with a small group of male friends.

One of the friends tells TMZ ... Dunn had 3 Miller Lites and 3 "girly shots" between 10:30 PM and 2:10 AM -- nearly a 4 hour span -- but he was "not too drunk to drive."

But according to another person who was inside the bar that night, Dunn was "wasted" -- and "had a lot to drink."

As TMZ previously reported, Dunn crashed his Porsche soon after -- killing himself and an unidentified passenger.  Cops believe speed may have been a factor.

Bubbles....Viet Nam was over before Ryan was even born! He was born in 1977. I hope you were joking.

Natural selection rears its ugly head. Sifting stupid from the gene pool is alright with me.

But wait...he was a star!

There was a single-car drunk driving accident in my area a few days ago where 2 were killed when they ran off the road. The driver was charged with 2 counts of murder.

You don't put lemons in Miller Lights. Period.

So the friend's obviously leaving out some of the truth.

Don't drive after drinking. Don't drive a Porsche. It's the cars fault.

Rip Ryan Dunn, I completely understand it is stupid to be driving after you drank alcohol, but the point is, he is gone. It is really sad, I am sorry for the family of Ryan. Jackass isn't going to be the same without him, it will be funny still, but it is going to be different. One crazy guy I tell ya that, but stupid at the same time. :[ You will be missed. <3

the flippant characterization of this guy was not only inappropriate but insensitive to those immediacy dealing with his loss...

This is really sad and tradgic news for the state of Pennsylvania. Our entire family is saddened by this news. Bam and Ryan really put Wester Chester PA on the map and really stayed true to their roots. They didn't tie themselves up in the Hollywood scene and were always proud to talk about West Chester. Our condolences to family and friends to Ryan Dunn and the passenger who was killed. May you found peace with the Lord. Thank you for all the entertainment and all the laughs you left your mark on the world with.....

I thought by law a bar cannot serve alcohol to you if you are obviously drunk?
Which state are you referring to? Can you pinpoint a penal code in any state which states you can not serve alcohol to known intoxicated individuals? Each state has different laws. I am unaware of a law in any state which says you can not serve alcohol to obviously drunk people.

If they know the person is drinking is the driver of a vehicle, then yes, it would be responsible to cut him off.. But otherwise, there is no law against people getting drunk. Therefore, no law was broken regarding the bars actions in this tragedy.

I do not feel sorry for Ryan, as he could have killed innocent people by his actions. I do however feel horrible for his family. He's gone and they're left with the pain and anguish of immeasurable grief.

At least he did not kill innocent bystanders..
