Wonder if his ankle "hurts so good"? And as far as acting like an idiot, it probably isn't an act.

Casey Cougar Mellencamp? He put Cougar in his name? That's the funniest, stupidest thing I've ever seen!
Umm, it's John's nephew. So perhaps that is actually his given name...you know...given at birth by his parents.
thats just wrong

I think its stupid that they publish this stuff and make sure they name whatever celebrity he's related to like JOhn would somehow be involved, or could have done something about it! Blasphemous reporting! They should be fired!

I guess the idiot should not have gotten arrested! He probably thought throwing his uncle's name around would gain him some perks.
The article says nothing about him throwing his uncle's name around. The Star just added the fact to sensationalize the story.

I want to get rich just like uncle John. I love smoking grass and getting so drunk I pass out. They treated me so badly so I am going to sue you because my uncle is famous.

What does this has to do with John Mellencamp? Does this idiot have anything to do with John? Does John take any interest in him? Does John take any interest in his plight? Was John contacted for comments? Who knows. The idiot who wrote this story sure doesn't. It's just a typical bear-baiting republican expose of someone who laughs at Bush.

Jack and Diane split up years ago. Jack went to prison after he blew up his trailer court meth lab. Diane lives in government subsidized housing and tends bar at the VFW.

I have an idea: STAY OUT OF JAIL!

Then, you won't have to worry about the treatment you receive in said jail...

What a pathetic lawsuit. Is he just using his name (by the way, Cougar is so early 80's and not used by his Uncle anymore) to file this? Bet if his last name was Smith or Jones would not be filing a lawsuit. Sounds to me like he is a total loser anyway.

What would your advice be to CO's and cops who break the law by abusing inmates?

Guess what, Sally? Sometimes innocent people go to jail too, through mistakes made by cops. How should they feel about poor treatment they receive in jail.
Oh, and btw, Casey was innocent during his jail stay when the alleged incident took place, since, you know, we're all innocent until proven guilty.
