Report: Ryan Dunn Had 11 Drinks Before Fatal Crash

6/24/2011 3:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn had ELEVEN drinks before stepping into his Porsche and crashing it off a Pennsylvania highway ... this according to a new report.

According to MyFoxPhilly, Dunn downed the drinks over a 4-hour period. As we previously reported, Dunn had a blood alcohol level of .196 at the time of the crash ... more than twice the legal limit.

According to Fox, investigators believe Dunn ordered 8 drinks at the bar ... and then received an additional 3 drinks from fans while he hung out in the back.

According to Fox, that means the bar is off the hook -- because they didn't serve him the final three drinks, which investigators believe pushed Dunn over the edge ... into visibly drunk territory.

If true, it raises a bigger question -- namely, why didn't anyone STOP Dunn from getting into his car if he was visibly intoxicated?  It's the Roger Ebert argument.

Now freeze it at 1:38 and tell me what you see in the trees?

I see an entity with horns wings a tail with a guy with a beard in a robe over it's right shoulder.

I need to know if I need to increase or decrease my herbal medication.

Peace.

EVEN IF HE ORDERED 8 DRINKS AT THE BAR- WHY WOULD THE BARTENDER KNOW WHO WAS GOING TO DRINK THEM

he could have ordered some for himself and his buddies
his buddies could have bught him some
fans would have bought him some

is the bartender supposed to follow each drink to the table to monitor who drinks it?

he probably consumed about that many but who knows exactly - his friends at the table maybe-but if they were as drunk as him -their memories can not be relied upon

As the truth trickles out..some of the comments over the past days: oh he was fine, he was walking fine..he only had a couple...Oh I'm sure he could handle it, those trees jumped out from the shoulder I bet...He could handle his car, I'm sure...

Sober race car drivers can't handle 160... mph on local roadways and would NEVER drive so nutty. One nudge of the wheel and it's over.

The bar is off the hook my azz if they served him 8 drinks they are toast especially if they knew he had a bottle.

Oh yes, the last 3 drinks which were gifts from fans pushed him over the 'drunk' edge. Clearly the officer used discretion by making sure the establishment was not held accountable. What were the 8 drinks he ordered? I suspect he was drunk before those last three freebies.

This just in: Fans buying Dunn drinks were the cause of his death.

It is a very sad situation for all involved. I agree that someone should have stopped him from getting into his car, namely the passenger if no-one else was around to do so. The roger ebert comment was a bit harsh but it doesn't make it any less true. He should not have been driving anything at that point, however the point is moot sadly since it ha already occurred and is in the past. Hopefully the sadness of this situation will have a silver lining if it can save someone from a similar fate..

Oh. Ok. It wasn't the first 8 alcoholic beverages, it was the last 3 alcoholic beverages. The first 8 alcoholic beverages didn't affect him at all, but the last 3 alcoholic beverages were a doozy.

Drinking and driving can kill a friendship.

Dude was a bad driver when sober and got behind the wheel after downing eleven drinks. His family, friends and community should be thankful he only killed himself and his war hero buddy. It sucks as it is but it could have been a whole lot worse.
Also, Bam Margera owes Roger Ebert an apology.

He is the biggest Jackass of them all!
At least he did not kill any innocent people.

No real loss here...

He probably was lit before he even entered the bar.
