The son of Hoosier singer John Mellencamp has agreed to seek counseling for alcohol abuse.

Hud Mellencamp is currently out on bond, after an illegal consumption charge.

The judge put off his pre-trial hearing while he gets treatment.

Hud Mellencamp and his brother Speck faced felony charges last year after a fight in Bloomington that left a man badly injured with facial fractures.
