Toxicology Results Released Following NBA Star and ‘American Idol’ Contestant’s Fatal Crash
Months after their tragic car crash, the toxicology reports for former NBA player Rasual Butler and “American Idol” contestant Leah LaBelle have been released!
In January, TMZ reported that Butler lost control of their Range Rover, which hit a parking meter before slamming into a wall and flipping over.
At the time, officers believed the car was speeding before the single-car collision at a bend on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City.
According to the toxicology report, Butler tested positive for marijuana, methamphetamine, and oxycodone. His blood alcohol level was tested using blood from his heart and leg. Blood from his heart showed a BAC of .118, which was above the legal limit to drive. His leg sample was under the legal limit at .062.
LaBelle's blood alcohol level was listed at .144.
The report also noted that an empty box of Don Julio tequila was found at the scene of the crash.
In February, the medical examiner told TMZ that the cause of death for both was “multiple traumatic injuries.”
