Mellencamp Sons Sentenced for 2013 Misdemeanor Battery Charges

By    |   Monday, 13 Apr 2015 05:46 PM

The two sons of rocker John Mellencamp pleaded guilty to 2013 battery charges on Friday after those charges were reduced from felony battery to misdemeanor.

An Indiana judge sentenced Speck Mellencamp, 19, to four days in the Monroe (Indiana) County Jail and one year of probation; his brother, Hud Mellencamp, 20, received 50 hours of community service and one year of probation, WISH TV reported. Both men will be allowed to complete their probation long distance so they can attend college.

The Daily Mail reported that The fight occurred at a Bloomington residence in July 2013, after Speck Mellencamp kicked and punched a man who he believed had hit him earlier in the day.

The charges were dropped from felony to misdemeanor because medical records from the victim’s injuries did not support “serious bodily injury,” as would be required for a felony case, Monroe County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Bob Miller said, according to the Daily Mail.

Attending the hearing with her sons was their mother, model Elaine Irwin, but their famous father was not in attendance.

A third man, Ty Smith, the son of former Indiana University coach Tracy Smith, was also charged in the 2013 incident, and he was expected back in court later in April.

Hud Mellencamp also was charged in 2014 with illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage.

At the time, Philly.com reported that Hud Mellencamp would receive treatment for his alcohol use after the arrest and an attorney said his parents were taking the issue “extremely seriously.”

More than anything else, people went online to comment on the names of Mellencamp’s sons:
