BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- A son of rock star John Mellencamp has been arrested in Indiana on charges of public intoxication and resisting law enforcement.
Police say 22-year-old Speck Mellencamp was arrested early Sunday after he and his 23-year-old brother, Hud, were involved in a fight outside a Bloomington restaurant.
Police say Speck Mellencamp was “very belligerent and unco-operative” with officers and medical personnel trying to treat him for injuries at the scene and at a hospital.
He was released on bond. Mellencamp's attorney declined comment.
Hud Mellencamp told police a man attacked him. The Herald-Times reports he suffered a scratch on his neck and a small cut on his nose.
After a 2013 fight, the brothers were charged with felony battery. Speck Mellencamp served 96 hours in jail.
