COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A grand jury indictment alleges that a central Missouri prosecutor was under the influence of alcohol last month when he crashed into a popular downtown Columbia restaurant.

The Columbia Daily Tribune (https://bit.ly/154nWZP ) reports that the indictment returned Friday charges 36-year-old Shayne Healea with felony leaving the scene of an accident and four counts of second-degree assault.

Columbia police said the Moniteau County prosecutor backed his pickup truck, which had the tailgate down, into a part of the building made of glass blocks before moving his truck around the corner. Four restaurant customers were injured by flying debris.

Healea has said in a written statement he wasn’t initially aware of the crash but immediately returned to the restaurant and identified himself to police as the driver when alerted.
