INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Indianapolis Fraternal Order of Police will not pay suspended police officer David Bisard's legal fees for his most recent arrest , officials from Lodge 86 said in a news release Monday.
Whether the FOP will continue to pay Bisard's legal fees for his 2010 case remains to be decided.
Bisard isn't eligible for the FOP's help in the most recent case, according to the FOP, and the newest case has FOP officials discussing what, if any, impact it could have on the previous case.

"The collective body of the lodge has a regularly scheduled business meeting this Thursday," the FOP said in a prepared statement. "We expect this latest development will be discussed by our overall membership. The leadership of the Indianapolis FOP acts in accordance with the direction of our membership."
The FOP said the organization was "disappointed" to learn of the arrest but that due process is critical for anyone suspected of a crime.
Bisard was formally charged on Monday for his most recent arrest. His trial for a 2010 arrest is scheduled for October in Fort Wayne.
