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.

hummmm....guess all the "haters" were spot on. All you Jackass fans need to find other people to look up to....clearly being a jackass is not just for the screen as far as they're concerned. This jerk could have hurt so many others.....hope his grave stone reads "Here lies a Jackass, in every sense of the word". The whole franchise is a social disgrace. I feel for both families, but I have no sympathy for idiots that make crazy money for being "jackasses".

well the name Jackass was never more appropriate - you do not have the right to be on the road in that condition just because you are a famous Jackass - it's just a lucky thing that he only killed himself and his passenger - can you imagine if he hit a minivan with an entire family in it at that speed? Hopefully the Jackass fans will learn a valuable lesson in all this but frankly, they really are the lowest common denominator in the society chain so they will probably get pissed and drive like mad in memory of their idiot idol - that wouldn't be much a loss either!

I got a Shiny Crisp 2 dollar bill that says Someone on this board who has been making fun of Ryan Dunn all week, will get popped for a DUI before 9pm on friday night.

It's going to be one of these loud mouths with all their scientific facts, pro-cop propaganda, and roger ebert a$$ kissing.

His past records obvious showed he never learned his lesson after wrecking his friends cars because he was reckless. Sometimes when you continue in your destructive path, you will come to a dead end. No pun intended.

F*cking moron! I can't believe people are worshiping this guy, making Facebook memorial pages. Not like he could have killed an innocent person or people. I agree with you, Roger Ebert.

Some of you people REALLY aggravate me. 2 men died!! Yes, he was drunk driving, and going too fast but have SOME SYMPATHY for the familys of Ryan Dunn and Zachary Hartwell. I love Ryan Dunn and the ENTIRE Jackass crew. For those of you that would rather pick at them for what happened, GROW UP! My deepest sympathy goes out to Ryan Dunn's family and friends, and to Zachary's family and friends also. May these men Rest in Peace <3 To all the haters, Grow Up

the funniest arguments about defending this p.o.s. is that he was human and 2 men died blah blah blah. ya, 2 died. many more died while typing out your little death threats/insults/wahwahwahwahwah on the computer. big deal. people die every second of every day for a multitude of reasons. do you mourn each and every one of the losses?? no?? cuz you didnt know them??? wow. good defense of reckless endangerment/drinking and driving/ just plain stupidity.

Who in the world would have thought that a member of the JACKASS cast would drink, drive, and kill himself?

Whoa. Never saw that coming.

people are strange    

It's sad he died a horrible death. It is very sad!!! He could have killed more people that night. At 34 he still was out of control. He had no respect for himself nor others by getting in that car and driving in such high speed while drinking. Maybe this will wake his Jackass friends up. Life is too short. I do agree with this Friends don't let Jackasses drink and drive. It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Wake up and life isn't a big joke!

totally avoidable in all ways. first, most of those sporty cars are like putting a cuda engine in a stinking pop can these days. Plus, please if you wanna party, either set a driver and make them stick to it or call someone. Its not difficult!! You were born, you will die and sometimes you willingly choose to cause the second faster, and not only for you. I have said on my ex husband that since he willingly drinks and drives, if someone has to get hurt or die for his choice, I hope it is only him. Sadly this didn't happen here, but they both chose. If youre gonna drink please hand them the hell over!!!!!!
