David Bisard was suspended from his police officer duties after being accused of homicide and drunk driving.

A jury in Fort Wayne has found suspended Indianapolis Police Officer David Bisard guilty on charges of reckless homicide, criminal recklessness and drunk driving causing death in a fatal crash in August 2010.

Prosecutors say Bisard was drunk when he crashed his patrol car into a group of motorcyclists stopped at light. Eric Wells was killed and Mary Mills and Kurt Weekly were seriously injured.

Bisard faces a maximum of 26 years in prison, since they will be served concurrently, and a $90,000 fine.

Bisard will be sentenced on Tuesday, November 26th at 1:30 p.m.

The trial was moved from Indianapolis to Fort Wayne in Allen County because of extensive media coverage.
