Suspended IMPD Officer Who Caused Fatal DUI Collision Busted For Another DUI

This is simply unreal. Suspended IMPD officer David Bisard, who still awaits trial for his August 2010 collision in his police cruiser with several motorcyclists, which left one of the cyclists dead and two others critically injured, at which time a blood alcohol test revealed he was heavily under the influence of alcohol, has been arrested yet again for driving while intoxicated following a crash this afternoon in Lawrence. WTHR reports on this shocking development:
Suspended Indianapolis Metro Police Officer David Bisard has been arrested for suspected Operating a vehicle While Intoxicated (OWI) following an accident Saturday afternoon in Lawrence.
According to sources, Bisard blew a .16 on an alcohol breath test but refused a chemical test at the hospital.
Officers were dispatched to the 10000 block of Indian Lake Boulevard South in Lawrence around 2:30 p.m. for a property damage accident. Police say Bisard was the driver of the vehicle involved in the accident.
Lawrence Police walked Bisard into Wishard Hospital for a blood draw. They arrived in an unmarked vehicle and Bisard was taken inside handcuffed. After the blood draw, Bisard was taken to the Marion County Arrestee Processing Center.

The two things I noticed first:

1) The BAC is very similar to the fatal motorcycle crash.

2) The time of crash is close to the time of the motorcycle crash.

Alcoholism is a disease which often leads to the detriment of a person's health, social status, and personal relationships. In this one example it would appear that one person is dead, 2 others are seriously hurt, and the family of the person with the disease is being destroyed by it. Nobody wins...and there are a lot of lives already affected/lost because of it!

What's the answer? I think the only thing that will save lives is for him not to consume alcohol...and incarceration seems to be the only way to make that happen.

Could this action be a defense tactic?
