Turns out that Jackass star Ryan Dunn, who recently died in a car accident, was drunk at twice the legal limit for alcohol when he crashed.

The toxicology report confirmed Twitter’s worst suspicions: police say that Drunn’s blood alcohol content was at 0.196, or twice of Pennsylvania’s 0.08 limit. No other drugs were found in his system.

Dunn had left a bar called Barnaby’s of America with passenger Zachary D. Hartwell, who was also killed when Dunn’s Porsche 911 GT3 slammed into a guardrail at over 130mph. A bar employee said that Dunn “didn’t seem intoxicated” at the time, though as we all know—that is never the case.

Always call a cab, kids.

Ryan Dunn, one of the cast members of Jackass, was killed in a devastating car accident along with another passenger.

Dunn’s Porsche 911 GT3 slammed into a guardrail at 3am in a small Pennsylvania town, leaving behind little more than a charred frame. According to cops, the car was completely on fire when they arrived, and both bodies were burned beyond recognition. They also believe that the car was going over 110 miles per hour at the time of the crash.

Dunn was alleged to have been drinking beforehand, through a picture he posted to his Twitter account. One of his stunts on Jackass was hiding a toy car up his rectum.
