INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A former Indianapolis police officer convicted of killing a man and seriously injured two other people while driving drunk in his police cruiser will serve his 13-year prison sentence in a protective custody unit at the New Castle Correctional Facility.

WRTV-TV reported Tuesday that Indiana Department of Correction officials plan to move David Bisard to the New Castle prison 40 miles east of Indianapolis on Friday. He has been housed since earlier this month at the DOC's Reception Diagnostic Center in Plainfield west of Indianapolis.

Bisard was convicted in October of driving drunk and ramming his police cruiser into a group of motorcyclists in August, 2010.

WTHR-TV reported Bisard's attorney and prosecutors are close to reaching a plea agreement on a separate, April arrest for drunken driving.
