For the second summer in a row, Duke football player Hud Mellencamp has found himself on the wrong side of the law.
The Bloomington, Ind. native is now facing charges for illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage in Monroe County. According to Monroe County, Ind. court documents, the citation was given June 29 and the charge was filed July 10. Duke's atheltic department did not immediately respond for comment.
Mellencamp was charged with battery last summer following a physical confrontation involving Mellencamp, his brother Speck, Ty Smith—son of Indiana head baseball coach Tracy Smith—and an unnamed victim. The trio allegedly beat the man on his porch and are all out free on bail.
The charge is a misdemeanor and will not aid him in his coming court appearance stemming from his previous charge. Court documents show that he will return to court for a pre-trial conference for last year's incident Thursday July 24 and is now scheduled to appear in court for the underage drinking charge September 25.
