One of those crazy rock-and-roll kids is at it again.
According to Laura Keeley of the Raleigh News & Observer, Duke defensive back Hud Mellencamp was arrested earlier this month and charged with illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage. The 20-year-old Mellencamp, who is the son of music legend John Mellencamp, is a walk-on entering his third year with the Blue Devils.
The school has yet to comment on what if any impact Mellencamp’s second run-in with the law the past two years will have on his status as a member of the team.
Last summer, Mellencamp and two other individuals, including his brother Speck and an Indiana football player, were charged with felony battery. That case is still ongoing, although Mellencamp has remained with the team throughout.
