HOUSTON- Video has been released of Houston Police brutally beating a Houston teenager who surrendered after being chased by authorities. In the video, police kick and punch then 15-year-old Chad Holley, who does not fight back, multiple times. Holley laid motionless on the ground while a group of cops descended upon him. Holley was a burglary suspect who was later convicted in July 2010.

The teenager has now filed a federal civil rights lawsuit alleging HPD officers beat him during his March 23 arrest.

Four Houston officers were indicted on official oppression charges and fired after a surveillance videotape surfaced reportedly showing them officers beating and kicking Holley while he was sprawled handcuffed on the ground. He was 15 at the time.
