Georgia bar owner indicted on rape, kidnapping charges

By The Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia grand jury has indicted a bar owner on rape and kidnapping charges.

David Ellis Ippisch, 38, was arrested in November and accused of sexually assaulting a 21-year-old at Hedges on Broad, one of two bars he owns in downtown Athens.

A Clarke County grand jury indicted Ippisch on rape and kidnapping charges this week, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Investigators said Ippisch pulled a woman into a storage area and assaulted her. Police said the man grabbed the woman by the neck and forced her to drink something from a bottle.

Ippisch's request for bail was denied in December, news outlets reported. Superior Court Judge Eric Norris said Ippisch posed a risk to the community. As of Friday, he remained in Clarke County jail.

Ippisch's arraignment is scheduled for March 2. It's unclear whether he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
