Second of John Mellencamp's sons surrenders

Posted: Updated:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- The second of rocker John Mellencamp's sons has surrendered for arrest on charges of punching and kicking a 19-year-old man in southern Indiana.

A Monroe County jail officer says 19-year-old Hud Mellencamp was released on bond after being booked early Monday on the felony battery charges. Eighteen-year-old Speck Mellencamp bonded out of jail on those charges Friday.

Authorities say Speck Mellencamp entered the porch of a man's Bloomington home and punched him in the face July 29, believing that man had hit him earlier that evening. Court documents say the brothers and another 19-year-old man "punched, kicked and stomped" the man who suffered facial injuries.

Court records don't list attorneys for the Mellencamp brothers. John Mellencamp's publicist has declined comment. The singer lives near Bloomington, 50 miles south of Indianapolis.
