An effort to crack down on drunk driving is one step closer to becoming law.

The Indiana House unanimously passed a bill Tuesday that would allow anyone with proper training to take a blood sample from a suspected drunk driver.

The measure is in response to the David Bisard case.  The IMPD officer crashed his car into a group of motorcyclists in Aug. 2010, killing one and seriously injuring two others.

Controversy has surrounded how his blood was drawn following the crash.

The measure now moves to the governor’s desk.

Bisard’s trial is set to begin Oct. 15.

    Guilty as charged. Life without parole because he was a civil servant and disgraced his BADGE. People that serve the public should be held accountable at far higher punishment than the normal person because they know better and broke that trust.
