  • A Chillicothe police officer has been charged with two counts of a Class A misdemeanor, stemming from an incident last year.
    Brent Schade was charged Wednesday with hindering prosecution and tampering with physical evidence by Brady Kopek, special prosecuting attorney of Livingston County.
    According to the probable cause statement, Missouri State Highway Patrol Cpl. J. Pithan investigated a traffic accident on Aug. 18 on Route V near Chillicothe involving two individuals. During the course of the investigation, Pithan reportedly discovered both occupants of the crashed vehicle walked to a nearby residence and called Schade. The investigation suggests Schade drove to their location and provided transportation to both subjects before returning to the scene of the accident. Schade allegedly assisted with the recovery of personal items belonging to both subjects, including cell phones and a bottle of Captain Morgan. Schade allegedly did not report the accident to authorities and transported the two individuals to his residence in Chillicothe.
