INDIANAPOLIS A judge has ruled a second blood sample taken from an Indianapolis police officer after a fatal 2010 collision can be used against him despite mistakes made in storing it.

The ruling was one of a trio of defeats that Allen County Judge John Surbeck handed David Bisard Tuesday. He also denied Bisard's requests to sequester the jury and to bar secret recordings of a prosecutor's conversations.

Attorneys have battled over Bisard's blood samples - the first because Bisard's lawyer argued it was improperly collected and the second because police removed it from refrigerated storage.

Bisard awaits trial on reckless homicide and drunken driving charges in the crash that killed one motorcyclist and injured two others.

His attorney had no comment on Surbeck's rulings.
