Cops: Ryan Dunn Was VERY DRUNK During Crash

"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.

#1 BAC and toxicology reports are not the same thing. That's why somebody can get pulled over, blow into a little machine and the cops can tell if they are over the limit.

Second, did somebody here compare Ryan Dunn to James Dean? Seriously?

It was EVIDENT that alcohol was a cause of his death and manslaughter of his invisible-to-the-media passenger.

Lived like a jackass, died like a jackass, will always be a jackass.

I AM STUNNED .. NOT

FYI JAMES DEAN WAS KILLED BY SOME GUY WHO SWERVED INTO HIS LANE AND HIT HIM HEAD ON , JAMES DEAN WAS DRIVING 55 MPH , HE WAS NOT DRUNK

NO EXACTLY THE SAME AS BEING DRUNK AND DRIVING AT 130 MILES AN HOUR

Good riddance. One less drunken jackass that could've taken someone else's life, possibly a family.

Yes, I would say the roads are a little safer now that Ryan is dead.

If he had committed a murder/suicide would everyone be defending him?

Because that is exactly what he DID.

He is a MURDERER

And he should be remembered as such. Not a hero but the killer of a hero

Bam Mangina and his fake tears are just a PR stunt to increase DVD sales or promote his own "jackass" career.

His passenger's family should get everything from Ryan Dunn's estate.

I thought the results weren't going to be available for another 4-6 weeks. Funny how the cops know ALL this information before the lab results are in. I smell cops that are sick of the jackass' antics and are out to muddy his name.

Very tragic! RIP. What a way to go. In a fiery blaze, very fast speed, and high intake of alcohol. A great receipe for disaster.
I can't believe if he had that high of a bac, way, over the legal limit why SOMEONE didn't stop him. RIP Mr. Dunn and the other victim.

Cops only tell you what they want you to know or think. In addition, I'm sure the bartender at Barnaby's said Ryan wasn't drunk to cover a** in the event of a lawsuit.

we all have that one friend who drives like an idiot & almost kills someone everytime they get behind the wheel. that type of person who doesn't give a dam about anyone, even themselves. they speed in school zones, fly through residential areas. run lights. almost hit cars passing on the right. this guy was one of them. 15 citations. he was a dead man walking. good thing he didn't take out more people.

A well deserved final outcome to this idiot's life.

Will the other Jackasses learn from this and stop doing the crazy **** they think is cool? NO. They will preach rubbish about "...Doing this next stunt for Ryan." nonsense.
