COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A new judge will hear the case against a mid-Missouri county prosecutor charged with drunken driving in an accident that injured four people when he reportedly backed his truck into a Columbia bar.

Boone County Judge Gary Oxenhandler on Tuesday was assigned to the case against Moniteau County Prosecuting Attorney Shayne Healea. The 36-year-old Healea is charged with felony leaving the scene of an accident and four counts of second-degree assault. He allegedly backed his pickup truck into a window at Addison’s in downtown Columbia in October, injuring four people. Police say he drove off and refused a breath-alcohol test when he was found.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1BL35oA ) Healea admitted after the accident that he drove his truck into the building but said he didn’t notice the damage.
