Judge Hears Arguments in David Bisard Case

5/20/2011

A Marion County judge has taken the case of drunk driving charges against David Bisard under advisement. At issue is whether the blood test taken on the metro police officer should be admissible in court. 
 
Bisard's attorney John Kautzman argued Friday that the charges should be dropped. Kautzman says the blood test doesn't meet state law and wasn't done by accredited personnel in the proper facility, nor were they following proper procedure.
 
Kautzman argued that's why the case test was thrown out by former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi.
 
However, prosecutors defended the integrity of the testing procedure. Chief Deputy Prosecutor David Rimstidt says the blood test was in keeping with law and good science.
 
Bisard is accused of being drunk during a crash that also involved three motorcyclists last August. The crash killed 30-year-old Eric Wells and severely hurt two others.
 
Judge Grant Hawkins will return on Tuesday, May 31st with his decision.
