Indianapolis Police Officer Heads to Court on DUI Charge

by ParkmanLawFirm on April 30, 2013

David Bisard, a suspended Indianapolis Metropolitan police officer, is heading back to court on Wednesday for his latest arrest for suspected driving while intoxicated.  Bisard was already facing charges of reckless homicide and operating while intoxicated(OWI) from a crash in August of 2010 that took the life of motorcyclist Eric Wells.  Two others were injured in the crash when Bisard’s police cruiser slammed into them at a stop light.

On Saturday night, Bisard wrecked his pickup truck on Indian Lake Boulevard when he crashed into a speed limit sign and then a guard rail.  Two neighbors ran to the scene of the crash and called police after they reported that Bisard appeared to be intoxicated.  The police report stated that David Bisard begged officers to let him go saying, “I know you know who I am, I messed up today.  If you guys can cut me a break I promise I will never drink again.”

His reported blood alcohol content on the portable test was 0.17 and Bisard was formally charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content over 0.15, both are misdemeanors.  Results from a blood draw at Wishard Memorial Hospital show Bisard’s blood alcohol content was 0.22, which is nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08.

David Bisard is scheduled to appear in Marion Superior Court on Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. for an initial hearing.  Prosecutors will request that Bisard be held without bond, which was set at $25,000.  Bisard’s attorney John Kautzman could not be reached for comment.
