No Charges Against Bar In Dunn Death

Pennsylvania state police say no charges are planned against the suburban Philadelphia bar where "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn drank just before he and a passenger died in a fiery one-car crash this week.

Sgt. William La Torre of the police Bureau of Liquor Enforcement tells The Associated Press that the agency has determined that Dunn was apparently not visibly intoxicated when he was served two beers and six shots by bar employees over four hours.

Police said 34-year-old Dunn had a blood-alcohol content that was more than twice the legal limit when the car crashed Monday morning.

La Torre said fans and other people, not bar staff, apparently brought Dunn three more drinks at a back table out of sight of the bartender at the end of the night.

Police in southeastern Pennsylvania say "Jackass" cast member Ryan Dunn died of injuries sustained in a fiery car crash, and speed may have been a factor.

West Goshen Township police say Dunn and a passenger died after his 2007 Porsche left the roadway early Monday and burst into flames. The crash occurred near the Philadelphia suburb of West Chester.

The 34-year-old Dunn appeared on MTV shows "Jackass" and "Viva La Bam" and the three "Jackass" big-screen adaptations. He also was the star of his own MTV show, "Homewrecker," and hosted "Proving Ground" on the G4 cable network.

Township police identified his passenger late Monday as 30-year-old Zachary Hartwell of West Chester.

In a statement, MTV calls Dunn "a beloved member of the MTV family for more than a decade."
