Ryan Dunn PICTURED Before Crash -- Warning Signs?

6/21/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Roughly two hours before "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn crashed his Porsche and died Monday morning ... he posed for pics with fans in a Philly-area bar ... glassy-eyed and flushed.

The pics show Ryan and his friends drinking at around 1 AM at a bar called Barnaby's of America in West Chester.

After downing at least 3 beers and 3 shots in 4-hours ...Ryan hit the road in his Porsche 911 GT3.

At around 2:38 AM, Ryan crashed -- killing himself and his passenger, Zach Hartwell.

One of my closets female friends can drink 6 beers in 30 mins and still be sober. Each persons alcohol tolerance is different. You don't know that he was wasted. Wait on the coroner's report before you start blasting people. Some of the comments on here are just mean and spiteful, maybe one day someone you love will die in an accident and then you won't be so quick to judge.

Ryan didn't look drunk in those pictures. Just like he was having a good time.

What a bunch of tossers some of you people are.I'm pretty sure Ryan didn't get into his car and say to himself "right i'm gonna die today and take a mate with me.He may or may not of made an error of judgement no-one is sure of that yet.People make mistakes and i'm pretty sure none of you are perfect.2 young lives were lost on monday and that in itself is a tragedy.To all you haters and sickos out there fnck off and find something else to hate like yourselves which is probably true seen as though you have no compassin for these dudes. RIP Ryan and friend you will both be sorely missed.Life cut too short.xoxo

Hoopee Hoopee

He looks 100% Totally wasted. There is no way he should have driven a car. Pride is a sin when you let it keep you from making the right choices in life. Sorry to see you go Ryan, but you did this to yourself. No one else to blame.

There's no accident here. It sure is a tragedy, but, when you drink and drive, you shouldn't be able to crash your car and call it an ccident. You'll be miss, Dunn... but, man, what a stupid way to die.

If it turns out he wasn't over the limit, a lot of you are going to look like fools. If it turns out he was, a lot of you are going to look like fools. Patience.. children.. the toxicology report will be up for grabs before ya know it..

TMZ what type of camera was used to take the pictures? Is it the poor quality camera causing the redeye? He is laughing in the main picture and it is possible to laugh so hard you cry, that might be the cause for the glassy-eyed appearance?

The toxicology will tell. People saying he is or isn't drunk are ridiculous. the tests will tell

Really...evil creep...to someone who just died franc. What kind of person says something like that. You literally have to have no heart whatsoever. I find this world to be funny, you know the first person to call someone an ass is always the biggest ass themselves, weird how that works. Go to a shrink and get you're freakin issues resolved...murder suicide? I bet you tell other people not to judge you a lot don't you? You really showed the world with that post franc. High five.

Wow, you people are losers over at TMZ aren't you? The Autopsy report from the corner hasn't even been released to prove whether or not alcohol even played a part yet! It's like you guys WANT him to die because he was drunk and have your little flock of losers behind keyboards trash talk him. Drunk driving is horrible, but lets wait til we get the 100% scientific facts before idiots like you and Roger Ebert(who was a drunk himself who probably never got caught drunk driving)start going off.

The restaurant Dunn was at confirmed he had 3-20oz beers which is 5-12oz beers in addition to 3 alcohol shots in less than 4 hours. That's 8 drinks in less than 4 hours. No one's body can metabolize that much alcohol in that short of of a time and he would have been over the limit in all 50 states. You can see he is plastered in the pics. Sure it's sad to lose someone you care about or enjoy, but Ryan Dunn made his decision to drive drunk. There is no excuse to defend that.

I'd say wait until the toxicology report is released, and then go from there.

It won't take long..

And I'm sure there will still be fans who'll defend him even if he was drunk, just like there are those who still defend Gibson even though there's actual recordings of him being an abusive ass.

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha. Drunk driver dead. Perfect, fitting ending. That's the fate every single one of them should face. I hope his friends are happy they let him drive. They are as much murderers as he is. Yep, I have no heart. But I have a nice big c**k that your mother loves to ride. ****in morons.

And again with people saying things like "that's what happens when you drink and drive". Just mean spirited and overly simplistic. Dumb because there's an investigation and dumb because driving at over 100 miles per hour on a road is reckless by itself. But "that's what happens when you drink and drive" is an easier narrative. Basically, IMHO, he did something risky, didn't get away with it, and died. It's a shame. To imply certainty is stupid and it doesn't work like that: Compare the hundreds of thousands of DUIs per year (just the ones who were caught) to the average ten thousand killed driving while drunk. So no, that's not what happens when you drink and drive, most of the time, it just massively increases the chances. If combined with speed even more so, because speed alone kills a lot of people too. It could have been far more tragic. They're all stupid inadvisable things, but stick with the simpler narrative because it's easier to understand and includes simple moral platitudes.

I'm kind of less bothered by TMZ reporting the pictures and stuff because it's news, and they're going to report it because that's what they do.
