Speck Mellencamp Facing Preliminary Charges After Weekend Arrest

Police arrested Speck Mellencamp Sunday.

One of the sons of singer John Mellencamp is facing preliminary charges after police arrested him in Bloomington Sunday morning.

According to online court records, 22-year-old Speck Mellencamp faces charges of resisting law enforcement and public intoxication. Both charges are misdemeanors.

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 uncooperative” with officers and medical personnel trying to treat him for injuries at the scene and at a hospital.

He was released on bond. A message seeking comment was left for his attorney.

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.

Speck waived his initial hearing and will return to court September 6 for a pretrial conference.

This isn’t the first time Speck’s faced charges in Monroe County. In 2013, police arrested him on charges of battery. In April 2015, Monroe County Judge Marc Kellams sentenced him to one year in jail with all but four days suspended, and probation until April 9, 2016.
