(BLOOMINGTON) - Bloomington Police arrested the son of singer John Mellencamp early Sunday morning after an argument outside a Bloomington Jimmy John's.


Speck Mellencamp faces misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and resisting law enforcement.

Police say Speck and his brother, Hud, were involved in a fight outside Jimmy John's at Kirkwood and Dunn.

The police say when they arrived they found Speck with blood on his face. He would not cooperate and became belligerent and refused to provide police with any information on how he was injured. When medical personnel arrived Speck continued to be belligerent with them.

Hud, who suffered an abrasion on his neck and small cut on his nose, told police he was hit by an unknown man. Hud told police a group of men began "mouthing off" to him and Speck before the fight began.

Hud was released after providing a statement to police.

The brothers were in trouble with authorities in 2013 after a fight resulted in felony charges. A judge allowed Speck to serve a four-day sentence in 12-hour stints because he suffers from a panic disorder.

In the 2013 case, Hud received a one year suspended sentence with a year of probation and 50 hours of community service.
