UPDATED: 86’D bar owner arrested on rape charge

On Monday, the LaGrange Police Department arrested 86’D bar owner Joshua Overkamp on rape charges.

Through an open records request to the city of LaGrange, a 2020 occupation tax renewal confirmed that Overkamp is the owner of 86’D, located on 109 Main Street.

According to LPD Sgt. Robert Kirby, the alleged incident occurred around 3:30 a.m. on July 12, when officers responded to a rape report in the City of LaGrange.

“We can release at this time that the incident took place after midnight at the bar, 86’D,” Kirby said.

LPD issued a warrant for Joshua Overkamp on July 16, and Overkamp surrendered to police on July 20.

“There was an investigation, which is why there was a delay in creating a warrant and the arrest,” Kirby said.

Kirby said no further details about the case can be released at this time.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact LPD at (706) 883-2603.
