Bisard Guilty!

Former IMPD Officer David Bisard could get nearly 30 years in prison after a jury found him guilty on all counts Monday in a Fort Wayne courtroom. He is now convicted of drunk driving and reckless homicide. As Bisard left the courthouse he said he was sorry but the charges against him weren’t true. Bisard crashed his squad car into a group of motorcyclists in 2010, killing 30-year-old Eric Wells and critically injuring two others.
