Ex-Indy officer guilty in crash transferred to DOC

– A former Indianapolis police officer who killed a man and seriously injured two other people while driving drunk in his police cruiser is now in prison.

WRTV-TV reports David Bisard was transferred Wednesday to the Indiana Department of Correction’s Reception Diagnostic Center in Plainfield. The center about 15 miles west of Indianapolis evaluates inmates on where they should serve their sentences.

Bisard was sentenced last week to 13 years in prison after being convicted on nine counts including driving with a blood-alcohol content above 0.15 percent when in a fatal accident. The legal limit in Indiana is 0.08 percent.

His August 2010 crash in Indianapolis killed 30-year-old motorcyclist Eric Wells.

WRTV reports Bisard likely will remain in Plainfield until an upcoming Marion County on a separate drunken driving charge.
