HOUSTON - The teen allegedly beaten by four Houston police officers on videotape has been arrested and charged with burglary.
Chad Holley and three others were detained Wednesday afternoon. The Harris County Sheriff's Office says the 18-year-old Holley is charged with burglary of a habitation.
Holley was 15 when videotape of his arrest on another burglary case drew fierce public criticism. The March 2010 videotape shows Holley on the ground surrounded by at least five police officers who appear to hit and kick his head, abdomen and legs. While black community leaders accused the officers of police brutality, several officers say Holley was resisting arrest.
One of the arresting officers was acquitted last month of a misdemeanor charge.
Bond had not yet been set Tuesday, and attorney information was not immediately available.
