Elderly Texas Man Defends Himself Against Career Criminal Grandson

posted on October 15, 2015

81-year-old Norman Holley had been allowing his grandson, 34-year-old Michael Holley, to live in his Mesquite, Texas, home. The two were watching TV around 11 p.m. when they began arguing, and as the conflict escalated, Michael pulled out a knife and attempted to assault his grandfather. Fearing for his life, Norman grabbed his gun and shot the younger man. After being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, Michael was released to police, who have charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

This isn’t the first time Michael has attacked Grandpa: In February, he confessed to forcing Norman into a chair and cutting him. Despite his long rap sheet, he was given five years’ deferred probation—but after his most recent attack, he may now face jail time for both incidents.

Police say Norman Holley will not be charged in the shooting. “I think it is a clear-cut case of self-defense,” Mesquite Police Sgt. Joe Smith said.
