Autopsy Finds Miami Pitcher Jose Fernandez Had Cocaine, Alcohol in His System at Time of Fatal Boat Crash


Jose Fernandez had cocaine and alcohol in his blood when he was involved in a boat crash last month that killed himself along with two of his friends.

via TMZ:

Jose’s BAC was .147, approaching twice the legal limit, according to the Miami-Dade Coroner’s Office. Cocaine was detected in his system as well.

Fernandez’s friends both had small amounts of alcohol in their system … one also had cocaine.

TMZ broke the story … Fernandez and friends partied at a local bar less than two hours before the fatal crash. The spot — American Social Bar & Kitchen — has a dock for boaters to pull up, get out and get served. 

It’s still unclear who was driving the boat at the time of the crash.
