According to TMZ, John Mellencamp's two teenage sons, 18-year-old Speck and 19-year-old Hud Mellencamp, have been charged with felony battery of a 19-year-old man who was sitting on his own front porch.
TMZ says police told them the Mellencamp's went to victim's home on July 29, accompanied by a 3rd man, Ty Smith (son of Indiana University baseball coach Tracy Smith.)
Authorities told TMZ the victim suffered facial fractures and cuts that required stitches. According to the Herald Times, Hud is a trained boxer.
The Herald Times says the Mellencamps told police the attack was a response to an incident that took place at a party earlier that night.
Officials told TMZ that Speck claimed he had been trying to break up a fight between two girls who were arguing over him when he was pushed and hit by another man.
It's unclear if the "pusher" and the victim are the same person.
Officials told TMZ the Mellencamps and Smith were all charged with felony battery.
