Speck -- along with his 19-year-old brother Hud and their alleged accomplice Ty Smith -- have all been charged with felony battery after allegedly unleashing a ferocious beatdown on a man who was sitting on his own front porch.

As we previously reported, the victim claims all three men attacked without warning ... and stomped, punched and kicked him ... resulting in a several facial fractures.

The victim claims Speck threw the first punch.

The Mellencamp boys seem to have some serious anger issues. John Mellencamp was on tv this week from a black eye, courtesy of his own 18 yr old son.

Why does it sound like these kids knew exactly what they were doing, knew what they did but yet used their famous daddy to get out of trouble?
That should be taken into consideration here.

They won't be serving a minute in jail and certainly no 1,000 hours of community labor. Y'all will chalk it up to horseplay among kids.

What do you expect when you name your child "Speck"? Way to tell him every minute that he is insignificant.

I'm sure he gets in plenty of fights being named Speck plus his dad has an enormous head.

I am from Mellencamp's hometown. He was trash, and looks like his boys are following in their daddies footsteps. I saw their daddy sucker punch a guy back in high school, over some tramp. Apples don't fall far from their trees.

Were these kids brought up in little pink houses or as porch rednecks?
