"I fight authority and authority always wins."

Hasn't Casey learnt nuthin from Uncle Johnny?

I can hear him now during the arrest "aint you know who I is? I's John Couger's nephew. You caint mess with me." As he's fighting the officers (hence the disorderly conduct charge), they take him down with force to control him. Then he says: "I sue all y'all with Uncle Johnny's money."

What's with the middle name? John Mellencamp only used that because some record executive told him to. Seems like he is trying to desperately trying to lay claim to John's fame.

I guess the idiot should not have gotten arrested! He probably thought throwing his uncle's name around would gain him some perks.

His name was originally just Casey Cougar, but he grew tired of the "glam" nephew thing. He added Mellencamp to get his own identity. I hear he's eventually going to drop the "Cougar" altogether so it will give him more credibility when bashing Pres. Bush full-time.

It wasn't the pot that made him act stupid it was the alcohol. I've never seen someone act an ass on pot. Maybe meth, crack, coke, acid, pharmaceuticals, mushroom and of course the king of all ass makers alcohol. Marijuana has always got a bad rap but is truthfully leaser of all evils. When was the last time you heard someone rob a bank or Quickie Mart to pay for pot?
Cougar is a stupid middle name and Iím sure he made old Johnny proud. This ass probably broke his ankle in the drunken stooper at the concert but didnít notice it until he started sobering up.

I had a friend assaulted by police officers, and his story never made the paper. I guess he didn't choose the right last name to use.

I don't think his name had anything to do with it...I think they pummelled him just for being from Seymour.

29 years old and wonders why he was arrested for pot and drunk in public (disorderly conduct). Hello.... pot is illegal regardless of who you're related to!!! And, I'm sorry if you are going to fight with an officer, then you deserve the treatment you get! The article doesn't really say how his ankle was broken, but don't fight with the police and you won't get roughed up!!! Grow up and act like a 29-year old ADULT!!!
