COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The drunken driving case against a mid-Missouri prosecutor will be heard in Shelby County.

Circuit Judge Gary Oxenhandler said Monday he moved the case against Shayne Healea to Shelby County Presiding Judge Frederick Tucker.

Healea, prosecuting attorney in Moniteau County, was charged in November with felony leaving the scene of an accident and four counts of second-degree assault. Columbia police allege that Helea backed his pickup truck into a restaurant’s window in downtown Columbia in October, injuring four people. He drove off and refused a breath-alcohol test when he was found.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1xulOrH ) Healea said after the crash that he was unaware that he hit the restaurant and returned to the scene when he found out about the accident.
