John Mellencamp
's 2 teenage sons have been charged with felony battery in Bloomington, Indiana after allegedly beating the crap out of a 19-year-old man who was sitting on his own front porch.

According to police, the Mellencamps -- 18-year-old Speck and 19-year-old Hud -- rolled up to the victim's home on July 29, accompanied by a 3rd man ... Ty Smith (son of Indiana University baseball coach Tracy Smith.)

Cops say the trio calmly approached the victim ... and unloaded a ferocious beatdown -- with all 3 men kicking, punching and stomping on the unsuspecting porch-dweller.

Eventually, cops say, the victim's roomates heard the attack -- and raced to the scene to break up the fight ... but the damage was already done.

Cops say the victim suffered facial fractures and cuts that required stitches.

According to the Herald Times, the Mellencamps told cops the attack was a response to an incident that took place at a party earlier that night.

Cops say Speck claims 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.

FYI -- According to the Herald Times, Hud is a trained boxer.

Officials say the Mellencamps and Smith were all charged with felony battery -- and the Mellencamps have already made arrangements to turn themselves in to police.

It hasn't even been six weeks since johns other son was arrested by campus police for drugs..... Pretty sure it was the spice! When daddy is a big contributor to the college, things get swept under the rug! Cheers boys !

Hey TMZ, "dweller" means that a person lives there. No one lives on a porch! You might want to rephrase that lest it sound ignorant.

Mellencamp is a self righteous Liberal who multiplied demons on this earth. Case in point. Same mentality as all the mass shootings in recent years, perpetrated by staunch Democrats. See a pattern here?

A few years back my nephew went up against Hud in a boxing tourney hosted by his dad. I think with him being a trained boxer. It will make it come down harder on him. Of course, they do have money!!!

I think USA is hit with the ex "Yugoslavian" virus..You know in Bosnia died 100 000 peoploe in civil war between brotherly cities..It all started like this incident with teenage fight,teenager calling themself names like 'HOMO' , "PYUSSY", "bITCH ".. And i guess this behaviour in USa is widely supported by bashing sites like TMZ.. I think you should calm down in USA and take other peacufull and loving aproach like civilized countries of Norway, Sweden,Switzerland where politenes and help to strangers is valued.. You dont believe me but i think civil war is starting and ongoing allready in USA, when spanish will fight against whites and blacks against whites...
