Britni Bunn Facebooked booze photos before DUI crash -- and earns eight year sentence

Big photos, video below.
Facebooking photos from bars or parties is practically a national pastime at this point -- but doing so carries some risk.

Especially if you get into a fatal car crash a few short hours later.

That's what happened to Broomfield's Britni Bunn earlier this year -- and now, she's been sentenced to eight years in prison for an act that took the life of her boyfriend and injured two others. Photos, a video and details below.

At about 2:49 a.m. on February 20, as we've reported, Bunn was piloting a Ford SUV westbound on U.S. 36., with her boyfriend, Vincent Gibson, 25, in the vehicle with her.

Problem is, she was in the eastbound lane. She soon struck an Acura coupe with two inside, Kendall Stiff and Nicole Leidich. Both of them were seriously injured but survived. However, Gibson, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, died at the scene. Our condolences to his friends, family and loved ones.

The crash aftermath.
Bunn, too, was hurt in the collision, which closed the highway for hours -- and the pain continued for her once police and TV stations like 7News accessed her Facebook page, which featured a treasure trove of images whose public dissemination couldn't have been more ill-timed from her perspective.

The background photo for the page, which was quickly removed and remains down at this writing, featured a glamour shot of marijuana....

...and a third found her offering a dog the opportunity to sniff a nug.

By the way, police reportedly found a jar of marijuana in Bunn's car after the crash, as well as a baggie thought to contain cocaine.

Alcohol proved to be the biggest problem, though. According to the First Judicial District DA's office, her blood alcohol content tested at a staggering .212 (well over double the legal limit) a full hour after the crash.

This finding can't be considered a surprise, given the photos Bunn had shared earlier that evening.

She should get more time for wasting weed on her dog, plus animal cruelty charges.

I've no sympathy for her but does berating her further in the media serve any good purpose? Is that journalism today? I fucking hope not.

Why wasn't the FOR PROFIT BAR that clearly OVER-SERVED HER held liable and responsible for creating this disaster?

Love you too Dee thank you she is a lowlife piece of Shit!! But I'm thankful for the judge recognizing vinnie as a person not just "the dude in the passenger seat" as britni refered to him!

She is such a disgusting human... I've known Vinny since he was a kid... She sat in court with a smile on her face, zero remorse... His mother is one of the strongest people I've ever known. 8 yrs for taking a life is a joke! thoughts and prayers to Rhonda Gibson, Veronica Gibson and Sheri Manes. Love u guys!

you never know when it could happen to you! im sure everyone has taken the risk of getting in a vehicle as either a drunk driver or a drunk passenger with a drunk driver!!?? this situation could have been prevented by either not drinking or a friend could of stopped them from getting into that suv also, the boyfriend should of not entered that vehicle but no one thinks that while intoxicated and having a good time yes its a shame!

That's the trashiest way to spell Brittney I've ever seen.

@Half Aspen Where have you been for the last 20 years or so?

@DonkeyHotay My guess is because the FOR PROFIT BAR did not shove drinks down her throat and tell her to drive the wrong fucking way on a highway. Quit trying to place blame on anyone other than the dumbass who made the choice to drive drunk. It's really sad that this Vincent person died, but really that was his own damn fault, too.

@Veronica Gibson ... so why was Vinnie dating this "lowlife piece of Shit!" ??

@Kym Bloom ... perhaps you can volunteer to torture her?

@angielovato That's not true at all. Some people know how to make good decisions, even while drinking. I've never in my life driven drunk or entered a vehicle that I knew contained a drunk driver. If you respect others and respect yourself, you can both have a good time and be responsible. Sadly, some people can only learn the hard way.

@DarlingCR                     Yeah, but she makes up for it with a fine last name.  So do you think it is short for Britni Bunny or Britni Big-ass Bunns?  Now she is going to be Britni Bunnk Mate for some 400 pound bull dike.

@DonkeyHotay @fishingblues   Don't need a job donkey boy.  I'm retired and flush with cash.  I worked hard and earned it, while all you ever accomplished was shooting off your big mouth.  That doesn't pay well, huh half-ass?
