No charges will be brought against the bar where "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn drank before he and a passenger died in a fiery one-car crash this week, police officials said.

Sgt. William La Torre of the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Enforcement told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the agency investigated and determined there would be no charges against Barnaby's of America in West Chester because Dunn did not appear intoxicated during the time he was served two beers and six shots from bar employees over four hours.

Surveillance video shared with police supported the bar employee's observations, said Frank Herron, the general manager.

"He spoke clearly. He walked clearly. He came in hop, skip, jumping. He left hop, skip, jumping," Herron told the AP. "If these (blood alcohol) results are true, I'm shocked at it. We were very confident that he had not had that much."

'Jackass' star was drunk at time of crash

Also, La Torre said, Dunn apparently wasn't eating as he drank and his final drinks of the night were given to him by fans at a back table. La Torre said most likely these final drinks put him over the edge.

"It's always a tragedy whenever there's a preventable crash that takes a life," La Torre said.

Dunn's blood-alcohol content was 0.196, more than twice the legal limit, according to a toxicology report.
