HOUSTON -- A Houston police officer has filed a defamation lawsuit against local activist Quannel X over remarks made about the alleged beating of a teenage robbery suspect.

Chad Holley's arrest was captured on video and charges were brought against four officers. Seven others were fired and several more were suspended.

Officer Waleed Hasan actually cuffed the 16-year-old boy. Court documents show he remains on the force.

Hasan is suing Quannel X for several statements he made to the media about the case.

When contacted Friday night Quannel X said he hadn't heard about the lawsuit.
