Duke walk-on, son of John Mellencamp arrested again

Hud Mellencamp

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.

    If he was a walk-on without a famous daddy he’d have been off the team about 5 minutes after the battery arrest became known.

    Hud. Uh, yeah, sweet name.
    Cougar always did an ear for the annoying, as his songs fully indicate.

    Well, the impact is obvious. His absence could jeopadize halftime shows for home games!

    What, no “He’s just a kid” comments?

  12. rwilk423 says: Jul 22, 2014 4:25 PM

    His name is Hudson Melloncamp nothing special or wierd about that and also his dad writes big checks to the school so go figure

  13. musketmaniac says: Jul 22, 2014 4:38 PM

    little pink cells, for you and he

  14. 8to80texansblog says: Jul 22, 2014 5:02 PM

    Of course @psly is over there making excuses for the white kid….

    He’s not a “punk” or a “thug” or an “animal” is he @psly? Not to you anyway, he’s just a smart kid that was having a good time drinking some beer….

    Even though he and his brother, with a group of guys, jumped a guy on his own porch and beat him so badly they fractured his face. But let’s make excuses for this guy, cuz he was “smart enough” to get into Duke.

  15. psly2124 says: Jul 22, 2014 5:28 PM

    Nobody is making excuses d-bag. Underage consumption of alcohol is in no way a big deal. In glad you approve of gang rapes, assaults with deadly weapons, armed robberies and other offenses committed by “kids [of every race, creed and color].”

    Fixed that for ya.

    Sincerely,
    Your daddy

  16. 8to80texansblog says: Jul 22, 2014 5:34 PM

    Umm… the kid, with a gang of his buddies, beat another guys face in…..

    But hey, let’s just gloss right over that fact and talk about how underage drinking is no big deal.

    A kid gets beat up and want to sue them because there dad has money. I’ll see what happens in court before intake your word for what happened . I guess it would have been ok in your terms Texan douche if it would have been a drive by shooting . That’s how you roll

  20. 8to80texansblog says: Jul 22, 2014 7:00 PM

    Odd that you want to see what happens in court for this guy but all the black guys that you post on are condemned as guilty just by the article you read

    Really enjoy how mods delete my posts, change my posts or don’t allow them to be read and judged by others. People never try to silence people that are wrong. Only when they are right.

  22. John Taylor says: Jul 22, 2014 8:14 PM

    Attention psly2124:

    The very next time you mention or even hint at race, even if it’s in response to this, you will be banned. I’ve gone back and checked your posting history; wow, you are one self-hating racist.

    Why I’m giving you this chance after what I’ve read I have no clue. But be warned: this is your very last chance, and you have very little rope with which to deal. Tread lightly, son.

  23. psly2124 says: Jul 22, 2014 8:18 PM

    Hey John Taylor fuck you. Ban me

  24. John Taylor says: Jul 22, 2014 8:20 PM

    Nope, not yet racist.

  25. John Taylor says: Jul 22, 2014 8:28 PM

    There ya go. Knew you’d drop the hood and torch that cross at some point. Didn’t expect it so soon, though.

    Buh-bye, psly2124.

    “Hey John Taylor fuck you. Ban me”
