Two of John Mellencamp's teenaged sons were charged yesterday (Thursday) with felonious battery in Nashville. Speck and Hud Mellencamp, along with a friend, allegedly "punched, kicked and stomped" a 19-year-old on his front porch on July 29th. The man suffered facial fractures and needed stitches. He was hospitalized and has been referred to a plastic surgeon.
The attack was apparently in retaliation for a previous altercation at the house that involved Speck. Arrangements were being made for the boys to turn themselves in.
Hud, who is 19, is a trained boxer, something his father alluded to when he appeared on Letterman with a black eye in June. John has not made any public statement about the charges.
