Suspended Indianapolis Metropolitan police officer David Bisard is due in an Allen County courtroom Friday for a pretrial hearing.
It’s in connection with the August 2010 crash that killed motorcyclist Eric Wells and left two others seriously injured. Prosecutors said Bisard had been drinking before the crash and tested with a blood alcohol content of 0.19, more than twice the legal limit. Blood evidence was in dispute before a judge ultimately decided to allow it.
Bisard is being held in jail without bond following an April 2013 crash in which prosecutors said he’d been drinking and driving. In that case, investigators said Bisard tested at nearly three times the legal limit after wrecking a truck in Lawrence.
Bisard’s trial for the 2010 crash has been moved to Allen County because of pretrial publicity. Judge John Surbeck is now overseeing the case.
