INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Former IMPD officer David Bisard was released from prison at 12:02 a.m. on Sunday, June 11.

Indiana Department of Corrections confirmed his release early this morning.

Bisard is serving time for drunk driving, reckless homicide, and criminal recklessness after he plowed into a group of motorcyclists on August 6, 2010.

He was on duty at the time of the crash, and his BAC was 0.19, which is more than twice the legal driving limit in Indiana.

Motorcyclist Eric Wells was killed in the crash, and Mary Mills and Kurt Weekly were severely injured.

Bisard was convicted on November 5, 2013 and sentenced to 16 years in prison, with 3 years suspended.

He was originally scheduled to be released on April 29, 2018, but he earned credit while he was in prison.

He earned an associate degree, which took a full year off of his sentence, and he also earned credit for vocation education and for completing a substance abuse class.

Bisard will be on probation with his license suspended for the next 3 years.
