INDIANAPOLIS (www.incnow.tv) – Suspended Indianapolis police officer David Bisard admits to his guilt of drunk driving Saturday.

Bisard was booked on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated after he crashed his truck into a utility pole and guard rail Saturday afternoon.

The police report stated that at first, Bisard denied he had been drinking, but changed his story after further questioning.

Investigating officers wrote that Bisard had glassy and bloodshot eyes, appeared unsteady on his feet, and his movements were slow. The report also says Bisard blew a 0.17 percent on his breathalyzer test—more than twice the legal limit in Indiana.

Bisard told officers, "I know you know who I am. I messed up today. If you guys can cut me a break I promise I will never drink again."

Indianapolis Metro Police (IMPD) say Bisard kept repeating that he was guilty of driving drunk in Saturday’s crash, but he was not drinking the day of "that other crash."

Bisard is referring to the 2010 crash when while on duty, he plowed into a group a motorcyclists, killing one.

His trial for that case is set for October, here in Fort Wayne. Bisard will be in court Wednesday in Indianapolis for this most recent arrest, but in the meantime he remains in the Marion County jail on a $25,000 bond.
