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.

Actually I'm not the one screaming and name calling all the people who aren't weeping on their knees about this. Is it sad yes.. and no we don't know everything but we as hell know some things. We know he was drinking last night.. period. Have you seen the wreckage.. he sure as hell wasn't 'taking it easy' on the ride home either. Yes he died, and if it was drunk driving and speeding then what a waste it was huh? So you shut the hell up trying to tell others what they can or can not say or think. Based on what we do know at this point he was drinking and speeding and killed not only himself but a 'friend' who had just been married a few months prior. Respect is earned and drinking and driving does not earn you 'respect' in my book.

No apology necessary. Speculation is stupid. That's my point. Until you know the facts, shut the **** up. It's pretty simple.

Here is a thought. Maybe it wasn't the alcohol that caused the accident. Maybe it was because he was driving too fast and lost control. Thousands of sober people die in accidents everyday from driving too fast or texting or talking on their cell phones. I guarantee eveyone on here is guilty of at least one of those things that cause serious accidents. Maybe it was alcohol, who knows. I have just learned that making assumptions in general is a really bad idea.

Sorry Wednesday400, drinking and driving a mistake? We're the ignorant ones? Ooops, I've been drinking, time to get behind the wheel of my vehicle. That's not ignorant to you? Actually calling that ignorant is being nice. Well if people keep drinking and driving, chances are some of those people you want the world of could be killed by one of these 'mistakes'..

It's saddens me that Ryan Dunn's unfortunate death COULD have been prevented. Have your fun, party like a rock star, but, be reasonable/responsible enough to get a "D.D." or even a Taxi. You're rich & famous, not indestructible. You will be missed by all of the Jack A$$ fans, myself included :( R.I.P. Ryan Dunn ♥

a person who makes movies about drinking (Hangover 1 & 2) is bound to pick up some alcoholic tendencies. i'm sure he was drinking pretty bad as a result.

@ NKGIRL.... you know if it had been a family member of mine in his passenger seat or if he had hit one of my family members i would still have enough respect to send my condolences to his family... as im sure his family would do the same... we dont make our family members do things its by their own choice and will to get behind the wheel or get into a vehicle with a drunk driver. so why should i criticize him for taking the life of someone in my family (if it were the case) when my family member would have made his OWN choice to get in the vehicle KNOWING full and damn well the consequences he was looking at by riding with him.... would i be mad/upset... yes... but its not something that i nor anyone else can change but themselves before making that deathly decision!

Yeah... but everyone one of these people saying they have the right to say what they want based on the speculated information, are all angels. They would never drive too fast, use a cell phone while driving, text while driving, dig in their pusrse... etc. You're right. My bad. Driving drunk is the ONLY CAUSE of deadly accidents. Nothing any of you might do on a daily basis. My apologies. You're right. You're all saints. Go one your blessed and perfect ways. Talk **** on who you want all day long, after all you are hiding behind a computer anyway. It's easy to say some stupid **** when you're not looking a grieving friend of family member in the eye.

Who put's limes in Miller Lite Beer??? He had more to drink than what is being reported. Look how red his face is, typical drunk Irish Man...Live like a "Jackass" die like a "Jackass"...It's just so sad...and totally avoidable.

Be careful Starly... They've all made it clear only the MADD crew are allowed to speak here. Anyone that's here to pay respect of homage to Dunn is WRONG. We are all dirty rotten sinners for feeling bad for a loss of someone.
