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.

Drunk Drivers kill thousands of people a year.. sorry no 'tack' or 'respect' when one kills themselves and others. I can't help but wonder if you would be demanding such respect had this drunk driver hit and killed someone changing their tire?

the real diva    

doesn't surprise me... too bad for his family and the person in the car with him. but stupid is as stupid by drinking and driving he is the cause of his own death..maybe one good thing will come out of this tragedy and his fans will think twice about drinking or driving...luckily he did not kill a innocent pedestrian or someone in another vehicle.. so let this be a lesson friends don't let friends drink and drive.

always a tragedy when a young person dies and let's not forget the other person in the car who has wife and everything, but this accident could have been avoid if they had the brain to take a taxi...

If you can afford a Porsche, you can afford a cab. Very sad that it was 100% avoidable. Feel sorry for his family, that's all

Took hero with you..Im sure he knew Ryan had been drinking..they both made a bad choice and paid the ultimate price

Rest in peace to them both. Thank you to the the Iraq vet..thak you for your service. Praying for both their families

(we all get he was drunk and killed himself..talking smack about him drinking and driving is getting old..stop talking smack and do something about it, reach out to a younger kid who is just turning 21 and talk to them about how dangerous it is..talking smack on here wont do anything, and its getting old)

Reckless, totally reckless. When will people learn not to drink and drive?

HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVED. He made the choice to drink and drive. The only sad part is, two families are devastated. Glad no innocent victims where killed. I HATE DRUNK DRIVERS AND HAVE NO SYMPATHY WHEN THE ARE LOCKED UP OR KILLED. BETTER THEM THAT INNOCENT PEOPLE.

What do I think of Ebert now?

He's the same OLD, snottier-than-thou, left loon he's always been. Can't stand the moron! But then, he's made his living off of critisizing others, so..what would you expect?

You know, I like Jackass, I like Roger Ebert. Bottom line....
Drunk and driving 130mph, what a friggin idiot, that's more than the limit for a jackass. For Bam or any of the Jackass crew shouldn't get upset but learn from others mistakes and comments. Haven't heard from Steveo lately, bet he's curled back up into a bottle because of this.
