HARRIS COUNTY, Texas A convicted teenage burglar who was beaten by Houston police officers after running from acrime scene has been arrested again for burglary, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.
Chad Holley and three other suspects were picked up bydeputies who responded to a burglary report in northwest Harris County Wednesday.
It happenedin the 12900 block of Forest Trails Drive around 2 p.m.
Holley has been charged with burglary of a habitation.
Holley was 16 when he was beaten by HPD officers in2010. The incident was captured on surveillance video.
He [Holley]had a chance to straighten up and this shoulda been a wakeup call to him, said attorney Dick DeGuerin, who represented Blomberg. Obviously, what we said in the trial was correct. He s a gang member, and once you re in that, it s awfully hard to get out.
The Blomberg verdict triggered protests and threats of retaliation by community activists, includingQuanell X.
Holley recently told KHOU 11 News thathe hoped for a fresh start aftergraduatingfrom Cy Falls High School.
I m just ready to graduate, said Holley, as he looked forward to the next step in his life.
When asked what he planned to do, he said, going to college and finishing. I m fixing to try and be a nurse.
Holleyadmitted that he had made some mistakes, from his choice in friends, to his appearance in another video in which he flashed what appeared to be a gang sign.
I ve learned not to hang out with the wrong people. To keep a positive crowd people who keep you motivated, Holley said.
Holley was convicted of the 2010 burglary and sentenced to probation.
Three other officers are awaiting trial in the Holley beating case.
