Mellencamp: already facing battery charges
Monroe Co, Indiana — One of John Mellencamp's sons facing battery charges in connection with an incident last year is now facing new charges.
Hud Mellencamp faces a misdemeanor charge of illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage. The charge was filed against Hud on July 10.
Hud, his brother, Speck, and the son of Indiana University baseball coach Tracy Smith, Ty, were arrested last year on battery charges. The three are accused of beating up victim Alex Bucy and leaving him with severe injuries. They return to court Thursday in connection with the battery case.
An initial hearing for Hud's latest charge is set for Sept. 25tb.
