Lawyers for David Bisard are due in court Thursday to ask for a change of venue. A judge will consider the motion during a hearing. A trial date is also expected to be set.
The high-profile case has been in the spotlight since Aug. 6, 2010, when Bisard’s police cruiser slammed into a pair of motorcycles stopped at a red light. Thirty-year-old Eric Wells died in the resulting crash; two others were hurt.
Bisard was arrested after tests showed his blood-alcohol content was above the legal limit. A judge later ruled the original sample taken from Bisard inadmissible on a technicality. An appeals court reversed that decision, ruling that the blood evidence should be included.
Bisard’s lawyer has petitioned the Indiana Supreme Court to get that ruling overturned.
