Allen Superior Court Judge John Surbeck heard daylong arguments in the case of David Bisard, a suspended Indianapolis officer accused of driving drunk in his police car.
In 2010, Bisard, 39, was arrested after his police car plowed into two motorcycles stopped at a stoplight, killing one and injuring two others. He faces multiple charges from the crash, including reckless homicide, operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing death and criminal recklessness.
While out on bail in that case, Bisard crashed a borrowed truck into a guardrail in the Lawrence area. He had a blood-alcohol level of 0.22 percent, nearly three times the legal limit.
The case was moved to Allen Superior Court because of extensive media coverage in Indianapolis.
Wednesday’s lengthy hearing was a continuation of another hearing last month regarding the admissibility of blood drawn from Bisard after the crash. His defense attorneys argued Wednesday that the chain of custody surrounding the samples was broken. The case is set for trial in October.
