INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A judge has revoked David Bisard's bond in his August 2010 case and ruled he will stay in jail ahead of his trial.
Prior to this latest arrest, Bisard was out on bond.
Bisard's blood alcohol level tested at nearly three times the legal limit after he crashed a pickup truck in Lawrence two weeks ago.
His bond in that case was originally set at $25,000.
Indianapolis FOP members voted last week to stop paying Bisard's legal bills in the August 2010 case.
Bisard has not been ordered a specific place of detention. A judge said he is presuming he will be transferred back to Marion County, though he will leave that up to Marion and Allen County sheriffs to determine.
Jury selection has been set for October 14.
Marion County Deputy Prosecutor Denise Robinson commented on Thursday's ruling, and what evidence presented in Bisard's latest arrest showed.
"The judge indicated we showed by convincing evidence that this recent arrest shows not only disdain for the court, but also that he poses a risk to the community," Robinson said. "I don't think he decided it based in the fact of the new violation of the law. But, he certainly said it showed a disdain for the court, and a risk to the community as well."
"We knew when we filed the motion for bond revocation that that was a possibility--a speedy trial request. We were prepared for it then. We're still prepared for it," Robinson said.
Bisard's attorney, John Kautzman, says he may be compelled to move up his trial date because of Thursday's ruling, though this has not been officially filed.
Kautzman argued that Bisard would be better served by being ordered to undergo a new alcohol abuse evaluation. He pushed for the judge to put Bisard in an alcohol treatment program, allow alcohol monitoring by Marion County Community Corrections, and be out on home detention.
He would not address whether he'll remain as Bisard's counsel in the case.
Mary Mills, who was riding on the back of one of the motorcycles Bisard hit in the 2010 crash, called Thursday's ruling a relief.
"This is exactly what I wanted. It's not so much just getting him off the street, but while he's sitting in jail there's no way he's going to be able to have access to the alcohol. And, hopefully he can find treatment."
Bisard will remain in Allen County until he can be transferred.
