Judge To Hear Drunken Driving Case Against Bisard
Embattled Officer's Case In Court Friday
Last Updated: 934 days ago
A judge will hear arguments Friday afternoon over whether to dismiss drunken driving charges against an Indianapolis police officer involved in a fatal crash last August.Attorneys for David Bisard said a blood-alcohol test on the officer in the aftermath of the Aug. 6 crash wasn't properly procured.Bisard struck motorcyclists stopped at a red light, killing Eric Wells and injuring Kurt Weekly and Mary Mills, police said.The blood test showed Bisard had a blood-alcohol content level of 0.19, but former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi withdrew a drunken driving charge because he doubted the evidence would be admissible in court.Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry re-filed the charge shortly after taking office in January. Bisard was charged with operating while under the influence causing death, a Class B felony; operating while under the influence causing death, a Class C felony; reckless homicide, a Class C felony; and four counts of operating while under the influence causing serious injury, Class C felonies.Bisard's attorneys also want the case moved out of Marion County.
