John Mellencamp“s 2 teenage sons have been charged with felony battery in Bloomington, Indiana after allegedly beating the crap out of a 19-year-old man who was sitting on his own front porch.
According to police, the Mellencamps — 18-year-old Speck and 19-year-old Hud — rolled up to the victim”s home on July 29, accompanied by a 3rd man … Ty Smith (son of Indiana University baseball coach Tracy Smith.)
Cops say the trio calmly approached the victim … and unloaded a ferocious beatdown — with all 3 men kicking, punching and stomping on the unsuspecting porch-dweller.
Eventually, cops say, the victim”s roomates heard the attack — and raced to the scene to break up the fight … but the damage was already done.
Cops say the victim suffered facial fractures and cuts that required stitches.
According to the Herald Times, the Mellencamps told cops the attack was a response to an incident that took place at a party earlier that night.
Cops say Speck claims he had been trying to break up a fight between two girls who were arguing over him … when he was pushed and hit by another man. It”s unclear if the “pusher” and the victim are the same person.
FYI — According to the Herald Times, Hud is a trained boxer.
Officials say the Mellencamps and Smith were all charged with felony battery — and the Mellencamps have already made arrangements to turn themselves in to police.
