INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - We continue to follow Developing News in the case against IMPD Officer David Bisard.
24 Hour News 8 has learned an attorney for one of the victim's in the crash has requested prosecutors to investigate Bisard’s possible purchase of alcohol.
The letter from is from Bruce Kehoe. He's the attorney representing one of the victim's, Kurt Weekly, seriously injured in the crash.
Kehoe hand delivered this letter to the Marion Co. Prosecutor office late Friday afternoon to investigate whether or not officer Bisard purchased a bottle of vodka at a CVS the night before the crash.
The letter asks,
“whether or not Officer Brisard would have purchased a 1.75 liter bottle of Vodka at the CVS at either the 56th and Emerson or 71st and Binford locations within the 48 hours preceding these most troubling events. If there was such a purchase, did it involve the use of a credit card or a CVS customer card? Would the counter transaction be on the surveillance tape? Is it a violation of IMPD
procedure for an officer in full uniform to be purchasing a large bottle of liquor?”
A day after Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi announced the blood alcohol draw on IMPD Officer David Bisard is not admissible in court. An attorney for one of the victim's involved in this crash is coming forward with information that could change the case.
"If you're going to be intoxicated before noon, what would you buy," said Bruce Kehoe of Wilson, Kehoe & Winingham.
Kehoe represents Kurt Weekly.
Weekly is one of three motorcyclists hit by Officer Bisard.
"Kurt Weekly is still in a coma; he's moving his arms and legs, but he doesn't recognize his family," said Kehoe.
Kehoe said a person has come forward with damning accusations that could help his case.
"It's just one more piece of the puzzle that we thought ought to be preserved," he said.
I Team 8 Anchor Karen Hensel talked to Kehoe Friday evening. He told her about the evidence.
"We had a customer at CVS that came forward after seeing pictures of officer Bisard on TV and say, you know what… that's the guy in front of me the night before these events in his uniform you know with his gun on his waist and his taser on his hip and a half gallon of vodka in his hand," he said.
24 Hour News 8 learned it is a violation of IMPD procedure for an officer to purchase alcohol while on duty or in full uniform. They can buy and transport in city owned cars if off duty as long as they are unopened and in the trunk.
Karen Hensel asked if Kehoe how crucial surveillance video will be, "It's going to put things in context you know," he said.
Kehoe is asking the prosecutors to check if there was a purchase, did it involve a credit card or a CVS Customer Card. And would the counter transaction be on the surveillance tape.
24 Hour News 8 has also learned the Chief of Police has received other request for evidence to be preserved from another crash victim.
