Ryan Dunn of Jackass fame received at least 23 driving citations in 13 years before he and his co-passenger Zachary Hartwell were killed in a fatal car accident on Monday.
Among all the driving citations received by Dunn, 10 were related to speeding and careless driving, while three others were related to driving with a suspended license, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
In a 2005 DUI (Driving under the influence) arrest, Dunn's license was suspended for more than a year. However, court records showed that charges against him were dropped after he completed a probationary program.
According to Pennsylvania state police, Dunn was driving at a speed of at least 130 mph when his Porsche 911 GT3 flung off the road, smashed a railing and hit a tree before bursting into flames.
The local police on Wednesday said Dunn's blood alcohol level was 0.196, more than twice the legal limit. However, no charges have been levelled so far against Barnaby's, the suburban Philadelphia bar where Dunn drank just before the crash. Police said Dunn was not visibly intoxicated when bar employees served him two beers and six shots over four hours.
Following its extensive coverage by local news outlets and websites, the news of Dunn's death have hit the charts of several national and international websites since Monday.
The instant outburst of sympathy for Dunn and Hartwell and a questionable Tweet from film critic Roger Ebert further added to the heat, making the story a top trend on Google.
Members of the Westboro Baptist Church, who protested against Dunn's public funeral, were not present at a memorial service for the Jackass star on Wednesday. But, Dunn's close friends, including Johnny Knoxville and Bam Margera spent more than four hours at a West Chester, Pa., funeral home, myfoxphilly.com reported.
