Authorities: McNair's alcohol

 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say former NFL star Steve McNair had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit at the time of his death.

Tennessee Assistant Medical Examiner Feng Li said Monday that the toxicology report also showed a trace amount of marijuana in the body of Sahel Kazemi, a 20-year-old woman who police said shot McNair on July 4 in a Nashville condo and then shot herself.

Police said McNair was likely asleep when he was shot twice in the head and twice in the chest.

Li said there was no way to tell from the report how long before McNair's death he had been drinking.

Kazemi was arrested for drunken driving in Nashville two days before the shooting. Police video of her arrest shows Kazemi telling the officer that she was high.
