Prosecutor Plans Announcement On Bisard Case

Curry To Discuss Case With Media

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry scheduled a news conference for Wednesday afternoon in which he planned to announce a decision regarding the case involving Indianapolis police Officer David Bisard.

The specifics of Curry's 1 p.m. announcement weren't immediately known. 6News plans to stream the news conference live on TheIndyChannel.com.

Soon after taking charge at the prosecutor's office earlier this month, Curry told 6News that he believes a judge should rule on whether to allow Bisard's blood test to be presented as evidence.

Police said Bisard was driving drunk and on duty on Aug. 6 when he plowed into a group of motorcyclists, killing one person and seriously injuring two more.

A blood draw showed that Bisard had a blood-alcohol content of 0.19 two hours after the crash, but alcohol-related charges were dropped by then-Prosecutor Carl Brizzi after it was determined the draw took place at a clinic instead of a hospital, as stipulated by law.

During his campaign, Curry said he would push to have the blood test readmitted as evidence in conjunction with a reckless homicide charge filed against Bisard. The officer was also charged with two counts of criminal recklessness.

"This office has already put the defendant on notice that we would seek to introduce the results of the blood-alcohol testing as evidence of the reckless driving charge," Curry told 6News earlier this month.

An attorney representing Bisard has already filed for dismissal of blood-alcohol results. A pretrial hearing is set for next week.
