A special master has been appointed to determine whether a mid-Missouri prosecutor had his attorney-client privilege violated after he allegedly backed his truck into a Columbia restaurant.

According to court documents, Judge Frederick Paul Tucker appointed Senior Judge Hadley Grimm as the special master of the court to conduct a hearing on the issues laid out in a memorandum of law filed by Shayne Healea's attorney, Shane Farrow.

That hearing has yet to be scheduled, according to online court records.

Court documents show multiple hearings scheduled for the charges Healea faces in the October 2014 incident have been cancelled.

Healea faces four counts of second degree assault - operating a vehicle while intoxicated resulting in injury, and one count of leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident.
