Teen At Center Of Police Brutality Case Arrested On Other Charge
HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A teenager at the center of one of Houston’s biggest police brutality cases involving Houston police officers, made an appearance at court Thursday morning for sentencing in a home burglary case but ended up being arrested for another case.
Eighteen-year-old Chad Holley was arrested in June in connection with a burglary at a house in northwest Harris County and entered a guilty plea in January. Holley faced up to 10 years in prison for that case.
On Thursday, Holley was in court to face sentencing for that home burglary but was taken into custody for charges stemming from another case. The teen had a warrant for his arrest on a charge of trespassing on school property back in 2012. As a result of Holley being taken into custody, his sentencing for the burglary charge was postponed.
Four Houston police officers were accused of brutality against Holley back in 2010 and that beating was captured on a storage lot security camera and posted on the Internet. The officers were accused of brutality after Holley’s previous burglary arrest in March of 2010. Last spring, Officer Andrew Blomberg, the first of four officers to go on trial was acquitted.
The other three officers await trial.
