(INDIANAPOLIS) - A judge could decide today whether suspended IMPD officer David Bisard will stay in jail until his trial on drunk driving charges this fall.

Troy Kehoe of WISH TV reports that 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.

But, Judge John Surbeck ruled Bisard should stay in jail until Thursday's hearing where prosecutors will argue that Bisard's new arrest violates the terms of his bond from his first drunk driving arrest.

That happened in August of 2010, when his squad car slammed into three motorcyclists killing 30-year-old Eric Wells.

Prosecutors will tell the judge that they believe Bisard will drink and drive if he's allowed to bond out again.

24-Hour News 8 could also learn who will represent Bisard moving forward.

Indianapolis FOP members voted last week to stop paying Bisard's legal bills in the first case.

His attorney, John Kautzman, has not yet said whether he'll ask the judge to be removed from the case.
