The case against suspended Metro Police Officer David Bisard is moving forward.


Judge Grant Hawkins denied the defense's motion to throw out the blood alcohol evidence relating to wreckless homicide and criminal wrecklessness charges against Bisard.

Bisard's attorney John Kautzman argued that the judge's rationale for throwing out the blood draw in the DUI charges against Bisard should also apply to the other charges. However, Prosecutor Denise Robinson argued that the interpretation did not apply to other charges and that the blood draw was admissible.

Judge Hawkins bought Robinson's argument saying the two instances don't compare. Kautzman plans to appeal the judge's decision as Robinson has appealed the judge's decision to throw out the blood draw on the DUI charge.

A status hearing in the case is set for January 20.
