COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - An attorney for Moniteau County Prosecuting Attorney Shayne Healea says in a court filing that Columbia police violated state and federal laws when an officer made a video recording of a phone conversation between Healea and his attorney.

The officer, whose name has not been released, recorded the conversation after Healea was arrested in October 2014 when he backed his pickup truck into a Columbia restaurant, injuring four people.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2f9yT2U ) Helea’s attorney, Shane Farrow, wrote in a court filing that the officer broke laws against wiretapping phones without consent or without a warrant. Farrow is seeking to have five felonies against Healea dismissed.

The state says a special prosecutor has not watched the recording.

No hearing on the motion to dismiss has been scheduled.
