(Newser) – Steve McNair was legally drunk the day he was killed by his 20-year-old lover, the Tennessean reports. The former NFL quarterback had a blood-alcohol content of 0.16, the state medical examiner said today—twice the amount at which it is illegal to drive. Sahel Kazemi had a small amount of marijuana in her system, but no alcohol.
