Police Capt. Joe Qualters says a third person, Ty Smith, son of Indiana University baseball coach Tracy Smith, has also been charged in the incident. According to court documents, the three men came to the house of a fourth man on July 29 and allegedly beat him up, in response to Spech thinking the man had punched him at a party earlier that night.

The affidavit says that Speck punched the man and he fell to the ground, then the three alleged assailants kicked, punched and stomped on the man until his roommates heard the commotion and intervened.

The man was treated at Monroe Hospital for facial fractures, where he was referred to a plastic surgeon for consultation on repairing his injuries. According to the Herald Times, the Mellencamp sons are making arrangements to turn themselves in to the police. Smith has already done so and is out on bond.
