Officer Accused in Fatal Crash Heads to Court

1/14/2011

An Indianapolis police officer is headed to court Friday to answer drunken driving charges stemming from a crash that killed one motorcyclist and injured two others.

Marion County's new prosecutor refiled those charges against Officer David Bisard this week. His predecessor had dropped the charges because he said blood-alcohol evidence taken from the officer would likely be ruled inadmissible in court.

Prosecutor Terry Curry says he believes the charges will stand and that decision will be up to a judge.

Bisard's squad car plowed into two motorcycles stopped at an Indianapolis intersection on Aug. 6, killing 30-year-old Eric Wells. The other motorcycle's driver, 44-year-old Kurt Weekly, and his passenger, 48-year-old Mary Mills, were both seriously injured.

Bisard remains suspended without pay.
