Rocker Mellencamp, actress Ryan split up after engagement

(WISH) — Hoosier rocker John Mellencamp and actress Meg Ryan have called it quits a year after their engagement, People magazine reported Monday.

The online magazine said rumors began after Ryan, 57, was seen without her engagement ring from Mellencamp, 68, at the Governors Awards, an annual event of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Mellencamp is a native of Seymour, Indiana. He was named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the Class of 2008.

An unnamed source told People magazine that Mellencamp did not want to get married again. He has been married three times.

The couple began dating in 2011 and called it quits in 2014, but reconciled in 2017.

People magazine said, “Though the two have always been ultra-private about their on and off-again relationship over the past seven years, they were happy to share the good news that they’re engaged in Nov. of last year.”

COLUMBUS, Ind. (WISH) — Two Columbus police officers have been arrested on multiple charges including official misconduct and ghost employment.

According to Indiana State Police, Dan Meister and Ron May were arrested for allegedly working off-duty security jobs while also working on duty with the Columbus Police Department.

Meister had overlapped hours on 52 different occasions and May overlapped on 62 occasions, investigators say.

The investigation was turned over to a special prosecutor and arrest warrants were issued for the men on Friday. They were arrested Friday afternoon without incident and taken to the Bartholomew County Jail, police say.

Both officers are facing charges of official misconduct, ghost employment and theft.

May and Meister are expected to face initial hearings soon.
