Prosecutors Rest Case Against Indianapolis Officer

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) – Prosecutors have rested their case against an Indianapolis police officer charged with causing a fatal crash after presenting a video by a reconstructionist of a squad car going more than 70 mph just before the collision.
The defense lawyer for David Bisard challenged the video during Monday's court session in Fort Wayne, calling it an “optical illusion'' and a “figment of someone's imagination.”
Bisard faces reckless homicide and drunken driving charges stemming from the August 2010 crash into two motorcycles that killed a man and seriously injured two other people.
The video showed three perspectives of a squad car approaching the motorcycles stopped at a city street intersection. The first defense witness was a police officer who testified Monday that Bisard showed no signs of intoxication at the scene.
