Bisard remains in jail, prosecutors want bond revoked

Many question why he still had driver's license

INDIANAPOLIS - Suspended Indianapolis police Officer David Bisard remained in jail Sunday after an accident earlier in the weekend.

Bisard crashed his truck in Lawrence, striking a pole, guardrail and sign Saturday afternoon.

Officers administered a portable breathalyzer test at the scene and police said Bisard had a blood-alcohol content of 0.17 percent, more than twice the legal limit.

Bisard was already facing charges from a 2010 alcohol-related crash that killed motorcyclist Eric Wells, 30, and injured two others.

Bisard’s bond in Saturday's incident was set at $25,000, but the Marion County Prosecutor's Office requested no bond in the case, which will now be taken under advisement by a Marion County court.

Bisard will make his first court appearance on the newest charges against him Wednesday.

Prosecutors said they will ask on Monday that Bisard’s bond in the 2010 case be revoked.

That case is set for trial in October in Allen County.

Bruce Kehoe is the attorney for Kurt Weekly, who was seriously injured when police say Bisard’s police car struck the group of motorcyclists.

“Don’t you have to say thank the lord that there wasn’t another life lost or other injuries and lives turned upside down like Kurts,” Kehoe said.

Kehoe also questioned why Bisard still had an Indiana driver’s license after his arrest in 2010.
