Famous music legend just shared devastating news about his son. I had no idea…
Rock star, John Mellencamp, hasn’t had the best 24-hours of his life. It appears that his son has been arrested in Indiana.
22-year-old Speck Mellencamp was arrested for public intoxication and resisting law enforcement. The arrest happened Sunday when he and his 23-year-old brother, Hud, were involved in a fight.
Apparently, Speck was “very belligerent and uncooperative” with officers and medical personnel. Finally, they were trying to treat him for injuries at the scene and at a hospital.
“Speck Mellencamp now faces misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and resisting law enforcement after police were dispatched to a fight in the area of North Dunn Street and East Kirkwood Avenue at 3:02 a.m. Sunday.”
According to reports, his brother suffered scrapes on the left side of his neck. Therefore, he also suffered a small cut on his nose during the altercation.
Unfortunately, he ran away at the sound of approaching sirens, leaving his younger brother behind as a group of men beat him up.
First, officers found Speck sitting on the ground in front of Jimmy John’s sandwich shop. Furthermore, he had a “significant amount of blood on his face.” Not only that but he had a cut above his left eye, too.
Detective Sgt. Dana Cole released a statement saying that he refused to tell police what happened.
“A Jimmy John’s employee used his cellphone to take video of the fight, and witnesses reported four or five men involved in the melee drove away in a Ford F250 pickup truck.”
Police said that Speck Mellencamp was smelling of alcohol. Apparently, his eyes were glassy and he had difficulty maintaining his balance. Officers repeatedly instructed him to sit, calm down and wait for the ambulance they had called for his injuries.
“It appeared as though he was going to fall down when he got up,” Cole said.
I can’t believe this happened. I never would have expected this.
Speck has always seemed like such a great kid. Therefore, This is out of character for him. I hope that he gets the help that he needs when all of this has blown over.
Please say a prayer for the family during this devastating time. Of course, I can’t imagine how heartbreaking this must be for them.
This is so sad.
