Case against mid-Missouri prosecutor moved to another county
COLUMBIA (AP) — An October trial date is set for a central Missouri prosecutor accused of backing a truck into a restaurant, injuring four people.
Moniteau County prosecuting attorney Shayne Healea will stand trial beginning Oct. 27 in Shelby County. The Columbia Daily Tribune reports his case was moved from Boone County on a change of venue request.
Healea's charged with second-degree assault and felony resisting arrest stemming from an incident in fall 2014. Columbia police allege he backed his pickup truck into a restaurant's window in Columbia. Four people suffered minor injuries. Police also say he drove off and refused a breath-alcohol test when he was found.
Healea has said he was unaware he hit the restaurant and returned to the scene when he found out about the accident.
