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.

FYI -- Ty Smith is the son of Indiana University baseball coach Tracy Smith.

I can remember a DJ on my local radio talking about all of the celebrities he has interviewed (mostly singers} and he specifically named John Cougar Mellencamp as the only one who he didn't like and acted like an arrogant jerk

Looks like that liberal/progressive upbringing has worked wonders. Hope an activist judge lets these pricks do time.

Hud and Speck obviously think they are above the law. Hud has not even turned himself in yet! The cops should go and arrest him already! Why let these entitled, violent sleazeballs turn themselves in?

He's named after Richard Speck, the serial killer, whom Mellencamp supposedly admires.

Had he been the apple of his father's eye instead of a SPECK in it, this wouldn't have happened. Then he went an HUD another one! It's late and a lame day.

Well, you don't have to be a Black youth to be a thug. Wealthy Whites can be thugs too. Is there going to be a viral video passed around on e-mail to frighten and intimidate Whites? Of course not!

"Spec"k home. HUD home -- John Mellencamp must have had real estate on his mind when his children were born.
