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.

Regardless of how people feel about drinking and driving these are still people that had many loved ones that are greiving the loss of people they truly cared about and i think it is ashame for anyone with warm blood pumping through their veins to speak such slander about these people. Like biggie said I wouldnt wish death on nobody cause there is no coming back from that. Death is permanant and we need to treat the dead with more respect regardless how they died. One Love.

News flash: man drives drunk, speeds, and kills self and friend. The public is disgusted at this reckless individuals actions that lead to two deaths, and not very many people are on the side of the one who was responsible for the killings.
Newsflash: Dunn drives drunk, speeds, kills self and friend. Everyone loves him and speaks of respect for him...WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!?
I mean, death is horrible an it sucks no matter who it happens to and I feel sorry for his friends and family BUT people die every day in this world and there are a lot of innocents we should be crying out for, not someone who is responsible for the death of himself and a war veteran...
Whether he was drunk or not, he was still speeding and he's still responsible for this matter how great of a person he was in life. Driving drunk and/or speeding is NOT okay. And acting like a "jackass" will more than likely get someone killed someday.

I've seen tons of stories in the news where people drive drunk and/or speed and kill themselves and others...and they're NEVER spoken of with such adoration afterwards. The ONLY reason why everyone is so upset is because he's famous. Celebrities shouldn't be allowed to do as they wish, get reduced jail sentences, and get away with murder. If Lindsay Lohan had done the same thing Im sure we'd all ****list her right off the bat!

I am completely against drinking and driving, but who am I to say I don't have sympathy for him. I have made mistakes in my life before that could have been wreckless or dangerous. In my mind both of these men made stupid desicions. Dunn by drinking and driving, and hartwell by getting in the car with someone who was intoxicated. Dunn didnt force the guy to get in the car with him, they both made that choice. Thankfully they didnt hurt anyone else and unfortunatly are paying the ultimate consequence for their actions, there is no need for me to bash them on top of it. We lost two young lives who were both loved, that's what we should say. It's simply a tragedy and hopefully people will learn from this.

Anyone who says .196 isn't drunk - is in serious denial. Ryan Dunn had the equivalent to over 10 drinks in his system. If you lined up 10 shots would you be able to drive! NO way! Here's the thing - you can't disprove science. Sorry.

Hope that helps everyone who doesn't think it's drunk a heads up. It's ok to party - just party smart.

Ryan Dunn was one dumb sumbytch. Driving 130 mph with a BAC of .0196 is just idiotic.

To all of you who are saying what if he was your Father, Brother, Mother or Lover and feeling as we're wrong for not having sympathy for HIM. What if your loved one was driving down that rode he was on? Not drunk, not high, not speeding or doing anything to endanger their own life or ANYONE else's. This loved one of your's is simply trying to get home to you, and along comes this sloppy drunk, flying down the rode, taking out not only himself,but his passenger and YOUR loved one too. Would you still have sympathy for him then? Because that could have been what happened. Thank god it wasn't. I have no sympathy for drunk drivers. You know what you're doing when you leave your house and go to a bar. He had money enough to buy a porche, he had money enough to hire a DRIVER. He knew he was going out to get f---ed up. That said I do feel very sorry for his and his friends families. THEY don't deserve to suffer such a loss.

People whine about others saying Dunn murdered his friend. No, he did not - in this case, because he died also. But if he had somehow miraculously survived this crash and his friend had died, you can be damn certain he would be on trial for vehicluar homicide. Because that's what it would be. I am a former First Responder and while I feel sympathy for those left behind and for the other man who was most assuredly a VICTIM, I have zero sympathy for Dunn. Drinking and Driving is a conscious act - and Drunk Driving can be avoided EVERY TIME.

Bam will be on THE View- G.M.A -inhaling raw onions to produce those heart felt tears- breaking down to Reege-Kathy lEE and Hoda. Can we make it stop ? BAM should tell Mr.Ebert he is sorry but the N.O.D. would never do that-unless he could milk it.

WOW, margehappens, do you know Bam personally? Like have you ever even met the man? How dare you take his pain and make a mockery of it. People like you are pathetic and disgust me. I'm sorry if you have no life of your own to concern yourself with, but bashing my friends and assuming you know a damn thing about any of them is not going to solve your problems. Go get laid, and find some other ignorant jerk like you to listen to your crap.
