2nd vial of Officer David Bisard's blood is being tested at the Marion County Crime Lab

Results could come early next week

INDIANAPOLIS - A vial of Indianapolis police Officer David Bisard's blood that was mishandled after 2010's fatal crash is now being tested.

The vial was delivered Friday morning to the Marion County Crime Lab, where it will be tested for DNA, to ensure the blood belongs to Bisard, and alcohol content.

Bisard faces a reckless homicide charge for the August 2010 accident when his police cruiser slammed into a group of motorcycles, killing Eric Wells, 30, and injuring two others.

In the aftermath of the crash, testing of one vial of blood showed Bisard's blood-alcohol content was 0.19, police said, but the test was dismissed because the blood draw did not follow police protocol.

A second vial of blood was placed in police custody, but it was discovered earlier this year that it had been moved from the police property room and left unrefrigerated for months.

The prosecution and the defense will both have experts present when the blood is tested.

The result of the blood-alcohol content testing could be in early next week. DNA tests typically take five days, officials said.
