INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - An Indianapolis police officer who was once honored for his prolific arrests of drunken drivers could cost the city more than $1 million in legal claims stemming from a fatal crash in which he is accused of driving drunk.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving spokeswoman Dorene Englert expressed disappointment Friday in Officer David Bisard. MADD recognized Bisard in the late 1990s while he was a Noblesville police officer.
Now, he faces charges of drunken driving and reckless homicide after his cruiser crashed into two stopped motorcycles, killing one man and injuring two other people.
Meanwhile, the city has been warned it could face one lawsuit resulting from the crash, and another warning was expected to be filed Friday. Each claim is capped at $700,000.

He probably made most of his arrests on illegal check points. I know this will be controversial, but I think MADD has created more problems than it has ever solved. They have gone from a concerned group of mothers, to a union-type group who basically wants prohibition. They have been fighting to raise the drinking age, stop serving beer at certain festivities, blah, blah, blah.... It they were just about stopping drunk driving, then they should shut up about everything else.
Nothing wrong with concerned mothers, but MADD has turned into a poor man's SEIU.
