Authorities say Speck Mellencamp entered the porch of a man's Bloomington home and punched him in the face July 29, believing that man had hit him earlier that evening. Court documents say the brothers and another 19-year-old man "punched, kicked and stomped" the man who suffered facial injuries.

Court records don't list attorneys for the Mellencamp brothers. John Mellencamp's publicist has declined to comment. The singer lives near Bloomington, 50 miles south of Indianapolis.
