Concordia man charged with felonies after incident involving police
Jackie Louis Holtcamp II, 28, of Concordia, has been charged with a pair of felonies for allegedly assaulting law enforcement officers and causing damage to police property on Monday, Oct. 2.
A probable cause statement obtained through the Lafayette County Court alleges Holtcamp reportedly had been asked to look after two children and was seen leaving a bar in an intoxicated state by a Sweet Springs police officer on Monday. The officer reportedly traveled to the residence where Holtcamp was supposed to be watching the kids and found Holtcamp passed out and unresponsive on the couch. Drug paraphernalia, cigarette butts and food were found lying about in the house and there was minimal food in the refrigerator, according to the statement. The statement also says the children were covered in dirt and looked like they “hadn’t been bathed in a week.”
During the process of being taken into custody, Holtcamp allegedly resisted arrest, kicking and scratching officers, and the report states he repeatedly kicked one of the officers in the chest, legs and groin when he was being placed in the patrol car for transport. Holtcamp also reportedly kicked out the passenger-side window, attempted to crawl out of the vehicle, and attempted to kick out the other rear window as well. The report says Holtcamp was told several times to stop, and was eventually pepper sprayed. While at the hospital being decontaminated due to the use of the pepper spray, Holtcamp also allegedly kicked a Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper in the chest.
According to unofficial online court documents, Holtcamp has been charged with a class D felony for assault of a special victim in the third degree and a class E felony for property damage in the first degree. He also has been charged with four misdemeanors. Bond has been set at $10,000 cash only.
Court documents also say Holtcamp appeared in custody by video for his arraignment hearing on Tuesday, Oct. 3, and informed the court he was going to seek counsel of the public defender. His cause was continued for a counsel-status hearing at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 4. No other information is available at this time.
