Activist says mental health issues plague Chad Holley Houston Chronicle Copyright 2012 Houston Chronicle. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 03:58 p.m., Thursday, June 14, 2012 Chad Holley, the teenager at the center of the controversial videotaped police beating case in 2010, was off medication that helped keep aggressive behavior in check when he allegedly burglarized a home Wednesday, said community activist Quanell X. At a brief press conference, Quanell said Holley had been taking medication for mental problems such as depression following the 2010 incident in which Holley was beaten by four Houston police officers during a burglary arrest. Since Holley turned 18, he has been unable to qualify for health assistance from the state, Quanell said.
