Chauncey drug case lawsuit settled
(WOUB) - Athens County Prosecutor Dave Warren has resolved a dispute with Chauncey over a drug case.

The village is giving his office three-thousand dollars taken from an alleged drug dealer, Michael Post.

But the settlement also calls for Warren to return 24-hundred dollars of that to Chauncey.

And the court entry - released today by Warren - states the two sides in the lawsuit have an "understanding" about who prosecutes felonies in the village -- it is the county prosecutor.

Warren and Chauncey officials had clashed over the handling of Post's case...which was treated as a misdemeanor.
