Cops: Ryan Dunn Was VERY DRUNK During Crash

6/22/2011 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn was extremely intoxicated at the time of his fatal crash Monday morning ... with a blood alcohol level of more than TWICE the legal limit ... this according to cops.


West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carroll told the Daily Local News ... Dunn's B.A.C. was .196 ... nearly two-and-a-half times the legal limit in Pennsylvania, which is .08.

Carroll added, "No other substances were found in his blood other than the alcohol."

As TMZ reported, Dunn and his passenger were killed when Dunn lost control of his Porsche, crashed in a wooded area and his car exploded in flames.

UPDATE: Now cops are saying Dunn was traveling between 132 and 140 MPH at the time of his crash.

First off, they said it would take 4-6 weeks for the BAC level. Second, a life lossed is sad, no matter what happened or whose fault it is. He was an awesome guy. Yes, he should have slowed down and should not have been driving in first place. No one should be saying this isnt a surprise or what a jackass he was because it is tragic none the less.

Just back off and let him RIP.

The bar will end up being sued, its illegal to serve a drunk person alcohol.

Just an FYI for the people calling him a murderer...

Here's a thought, and I could be wrong, but my guess is that Zach wasn't forced into the car against his will. He may have even been out drinking with Ryan (according to pictures, this is true). So, he may have even realized that Ryan was drunk. Murder...going a little far.

I am completely unbiased..I had no idea who this Ryan Dunn even was. I just thought the comments are completely thoughtless and ruthless.

This isn't Bob Hope here. He got rich by sitting on a dinky car, obviously the type of person that drinks and drives. Ryan Dunn isn't a big star; the only way I'd recognize him on the street is if he was walking backwards and had a condom-wrapped die cast car sticking out of his ass. But hey, at least he died smashing a Porshe 911 GT3. I know people that have died the dumb way in Joe Dirt cars (eagle premier, ford tempo, chrysler k-car, etc). Cherish life and let others mourn the dumb. My heart goes out to his passenger and his family. Count your driver's drinks people!

i think all of you that are calling him stupid and basically saying he got what he deserved are all a bunch of asses..and he didnt hit another car or anything so instead of "thanking god" that he didnt hit some other cars.. lets remember someone that was AWESOME..someone who i will miss jackass or not!!.. and to someone that i believe was taken to too soon... rest easy ryan dunn.. you are gonna be missed<3

Toxicology is for drugs: legal and illegal, while BAC is a seperate test and can be done in a few minutes with blood, urine or breath.

NO EXCUSE for going 132-140 mph (the cops are now saying), and OVER 2 times the limit???

I am just SO DISGUSTED with this.

BYE BYE JACKASS brand, get used to being shelved next to Life with Daria.

PS- Missy run like hell b4 Bam takes you down with you.... the jackass enterprise is over. MTV wants to be controversial but NOT with teenagers looking up to and mocking drunk drivers that KILL.

It's an unfortunate fact that this man, who made so many of us laugh and had so many dear friends, will be remembered more for how he died and the last twitter picture, then for what he gave us in his lifetime. Drinking and driving is a foolish, dangerous thing to do, and this is such a sad example of the effect of doing that, but it doesn't make me any less a fan....Rest in Peace, Ryan.....

What is wrong with you people? Have you even watched Jackass or Viva la Bam? Regardless of your views on Jackass stunts or drunk driving, Bam Margera and Ryan Dunn have known each other since High School and have lived together like brothers. Bam and his parents are no doubt devasted by this tragedy. Those tears are real and are coming from a guy that experiences pain for your amusement without shedding a tear.

It's not murder, it's manslaughter. You kill someone even though you didn't mean to do it, the we call it manslaughter.
