John Mellencamp's son, Speck, sentenced to community service

John Mellencamp’s son Speck has pleaded guilty to a July arrest for public intoxication.

Speck, 22, was sentenced to 25 hours of community service and 194 days of unsupervised probation stemming from a misdemeanor public intoxication charge.

The youngest son of the “Jack and Diane” singer was arrested in Indiana on July 16 after he and brother Hud, 23, got in a fight outside a Bloominton Jimmy John’s.

Police said Speck “had blood all over his face,” “would not cooperate or provide information on his injuries” and was “very belligerent and uncooperative.”

Hud told police that a group of men had been “mouthing off,” which instigated the fight.

The Mellencamp sons had previously been arrested and charged with felony battery after a fight in 2013.

The charges were dropped to misdemeanor battery and Speck served 86 hours in jail, split up into 12-hour stints over four days due to his panic disorder.
