“My sister said to me, in the moment, not in hindsight, she goes, ‘wow, he looked wasted,” Pabst said. “And I looked at her and I go, ‘yeah, he seemed kind of out of it.'”

Police also reportedly asked the manager of a Village grocery store that Hoffman visited that night if there is any video surveillance of the actor, but none existed. Hoffman, looked “gray” while buying soda and toiletries at 10:30 that night, Fox News reports.

    What a terrible waste of brilliant talent.

    Wait…isn't there a ‘limit’ on cash withdrawals from any ATM?

    • OC

      I don't have a limit as long as I have the money, but not more than $500, I think, at a time.

    • MoneyBags

      My limit is $5,000, but you have to take some extra verification steps to set it up this way. I'm sure someone as wealthy as Hoffman wouldn't have a problem having a limit over $1200. Also, a lot of ATMs in NY dispense $50 bills now so it's possible to get that much in 1 shot.

    My limit $800

  • Robert

    you can have more than one account, and they did say he withdrew money between the hours of 8-9.

  • Kelly Ryan

    he was fixing to have a good old time that night

  • blaq rose

    Why is everyone focused on the bank limit amount? He could have borrowed from just anybody or even gotten it on the cuff. Jesus is everyone here an addict? Focus on the big picture ie the drugs NOT the atm limit. I am in shock about society right fuckin now!
