Former NBA player Rasual Butler, who was killed earlier this year in a high speed car crash, may not have been in full control of the vehicle when he got behind the wheel, according to some shocking new reports.
Butler crashed his Land Rover in the Los Angeles area with his so-called wife in the passenger seat around 2:30 AM this January. Not many details were known about the cause of the crash, until Thursday. Early autopsy results are showing Butler’s blood alcohol content was .118, which is above the legal limit. The report also suggests he was under the influence of marijuana, the painkiller oxycodone and methamphetamines. (RELATED: Jose Fernandez’s Lawyer Claims He Was Framed In Fatal Boat Crash)
The woman in his passenger seat who he called his wife, Leah LaBelle, reportedly had a BAC of .144, also above the legal limit.
“The SUV was traveling westbound on Ventura Boulevard when the vehicle lost control, hit multiple parking meters, slammed into a wall, overturned and ended up in a parking lot,” police said at the time of the crash. The scene is pretty brutal.

An empty box of tequila was also found at the scene of the crash.
All of these details matter, TMZ says, because LaBelle’s family could sue Butler’s family for wrongful death.
