FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A jury has ended its first day of deliberations in the reckless homicide and drunken driving trial of an Indianapolis police officer charged in a fatal crash.
The Fort Wayne jury got the David Bisard case on Monday afternoon and deliberated about three hours before quitting for the evening. It's due to resume Tuesday morning.
Bisard's patrol car crashed into two motorcycles stopped at an Indianapolis traffic light in August 2010, killing a 30-year-old man and seriously injuring two other people.
