Police Dog That Attacked Teen Worked With Bisard

K9 Had Been Given To New Partner

The dog that attacked an 18-year-old woman outside a church over the weekend used to be the service animal that worked with Officer David Bisard, the embattled Indianapolis police officer who was charged in a fatal crash that happened while he was on duty.

The dog attacked Natalie Bradley-Wilson, 18, Sunday as she left the Kingdom Hall church parking lot in the 8200 block of Five Points Road, where she had attended a youth event.

Bradley-Wilson was taken to St. Francis Hospital and treated for multiple bites and scratches to her shoulder, chest and neck.

The dog had recently been placed with a new partner who lives next to the church. It was in the police car with Bisard in August when he hit three motorcyclists, killing one and seriously injuring the other two.

Police said the dog had no previous incidents and will remain in service. The teen's family is considering a lawsuit against the department.
