Jackass - Jackass Stars Turn Out For Dunn's Memorial Service

Jackass pranksters Johnny Knoxville and Bam Margera turned out to honour their late co-star Ryan Dunn at a private memorial service in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Wednesday afternoon (22Jun11).
The TV stuntman was killed in a horrific high-speed car crash in the early hours of Monday morning (20Jun11) when his Porsche spun out of control and smashed into trees in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania.
Dunn died along with his passenger, Jackass production assistant Zachary Hartwell, and a toxicology report allegedly suggests the star was over the drink-drive limit.
A private remembrance service for Dunn was held at a funeral home in West Chester, Pennsylvania on Wednesday and his pals Knoxville and Margera were both among the mourners.
A full funeral will be held later this week (beg20Jun11), but the service has been threatened by members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church, who have vowed to picket the memorial.
Funeral director Joseph DellaVecchia, who is in charge of the service, is aware of the church's plans, but reveals police officers will be on hand to make sure there isn't any trouble, telling Cnn, "We can't stop someone from coming to a public funeral, but this is private, and the police have everything under control."
