Rock singer John Mellencamp’s two teenage sons have been charged with felony battery and have been accused of jumping a 19-year-old man who was sitting on his own front porch in Bloomington, Ind., TMZ reported.
According to the TMZ report, law officials said the three calmly approached the unsuspecting victim before delivering a brutal beatdown, kicking, punching and stomping the resident of the home.
Officers said the victim suffered facial fractures and cuts that required stitches.
“Speck Mellencamp said he had tried to stop a dispute between two girls who were fighting over him and was pushed and hit by a man. He was upset by the incident and not thinking straight, he said, when he returned to the house with his brother and Smith,” the Herald Times reported.
