Ryan Dunn Was Indeed A Very Drunk Jackass

June 23, 2011 06:05 AM by Lisa Princ

We already knew that MTV‘s Jackass star Ryan Dunn was traveling at 130 MPH when his car crashed, but now it has been confirmed that the star was indeed drunk. In fact, Ryan was VERY drunk! Read on for more…

More and more details of the tragic death of Jackass star Ryan Dunn have been emerging and now the toxicology report is in which proved Ryan was drunk while driving – not that anyone believed he wasn’t. But just how drunk was he? Ryan Dunn was actually very drunk as his blood alcohol level was reported to be 0.196, which is more than double the legal limit of 0.08.

Despite these findings, the general manager at the bar in which Dunn was drinking that night cannot believe it. In a statement to the Associated Press, Frank Herron said: “He spoke clearly. He walked clearly. He came in hop, skip, jumping. He left hop, skip, jumping. If these results are true, I’m shocked at it. We were very confident that he had not had that much.”

At this time, there will be no charges against the bar in question as investigators examined the surveillance video which showed Dunn without apparent signs of binge drinking or intoxication. Unfortunately, it is very common to not show signs of intoxication if one is a seasoned drinker, which is probably the case here.

    My heart goes out toRyans family and also Zachs family.Ryans death has sent a shock wave around the world. I was shocked when I heard about his passing. I like Bam had a somewhat premonition about my friend who died 7yrs ago due to a drunk driver. at 717pm on june 9th 2004 I remember being in a residents room and looking at the clock and I had the weirdest feeling that something happened. it wasnt until 930pm that i had learned of my best friends death. RIP Ryan you will be sorely missed. Jackass will never be the same without you. this goes out to Bam I know exactly how you feel and what you are going through. I am still getting over the fact that my best friend is gone. over time it has been hard to accept but as the years go by it does get easier. keep your head up Bam your a strong man.

    My daughter and I were in West Chester that night. She was sadden to hear of his passing as I am 3 years recovering and she stands by my side every day. I have been there and done that with wondering if I was ok to drive or not and I know what he thought when he left that night. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bam and the Jackass crew for your loss. We met Ryan just once in passing and knew he was a good honest man about what he did for a living just by the way he spoke, laughed and shook the hand of a stranger, even told his story to us. He will be missed. As for his friends widow, we hold you in our thoughts and prayers as well and I am sorry for your loss. Bam, we were there at the site with you, and felt we needed to respect your space to mourn. You are in are thoughts and prayers as your parents are as well.

    This is a sick and sad world. How can anyone be SHOCKED that someone drinking and driving died?!?! The act of drinking and driving is one of the most self centered things a person can do. This is a true testament to his character. I could careless about people who drink and drive because they do not care about my innocent children who they may injure with their recklessness. How about morning the tragic death of soldiers instead of those who promote a life of drinking and contributing nothing to society. :|

    Marty well said!! I am a friend of Bill, none of us thinks it will happen to us.. confused barbara, think about it. Have you never ever had a drink before going somewhere? Ever? It must be nice to be on that high horse and yet I get what you are saying. Why don’t you go find a nice site, maybe pro Casey Anthony? You could mesmerize people there.

    Marty again, keep up the good fight. We all learn from something and today I learn to be tolerant. I got pulled over and blew a .5**, did I feel drunk? Not really, but I was pulled over not for anything I did while driving, I was pulled over because friends called the police to tell them I had been drinking alot that day and to check on me.. Am I proud? No. Funny how my friends were so worried they “let” me leave? I did not show signs that I could drink heavily and be ok… same thing w Ryan Dunn, a very good person, gone.
