John Mellencamp's two teenage sons are facing felony battery charges after allegedly assaulting another young man on his own front porch in Bloomington, Indiana last month, reports TMZ.
According to Nashville police, Speck Mellencamp, 18, and brother Hud Mellencamp, 19, attacked the victim on July 29 following an altercation at a party earlier that night. The brothers were accompanied by a third attacker, Ty Smith, a friend of the Mellencamps and the son of Indiana University basketball coach Tracy Smith. The trio reportedly "punched, kicked, and stomped" the unsuspecting victim until his roommates heard the attack and broke up the fight.
The victim suffered from facial fractures and cuts that required stitches and is being referred to a plastic surgeon.
Authorities say Speck claims he was trying to break up two girls who were fighting over him at the party when he was pushed and hit by a man. He told police that he was not thinking straight and returned to the house with his brother and Smith because he was was upset over the incident. It is unclear whether the victim and the "pusher" are the same person.
The Mellencamp brothers and Smith were all charged with felony battery. Smith already turned himself into police and the Mellencamps have made plans to turn themselves in as well.
