The family of the man killed in a crash with Indianapolis police officer David Bisard filed a lawsuit Monday against the city, the police department and Bisard himself. Bisard is accused of driving drunk and smashing his squad car into several motorcyclists during a car chase. The lawsuit seeks $700,000 in damages for the wrongful death of Eric Wells, who died at the scene. The amount is the maximum allowed by state law.
