“They didn’t explain it to me,” Hill said. “They just took me in there, handcuffed me to a bench for an hour and a half. They were doing a search on the car. They searched the car for like an hour. They didn’t find nothing, and they let me go. The whole time they were telling me how they weren’t going to lock me up, that they were targeting my friend.”
“I think it was because of the video, but they said it was the people I was around,” Hill said. “I don’t think it was that though, because most of the kids I hang around are college kids. I think they just wanted to take me down to the district to show who I was.”

is there a mental health test to determine is somebody is just a jerk? I'm not familiar with it.

Is it normal practise to handcuff someone while questioning them?
This seems to be the only real problem here, as the cops held him for less than two hours while they searched his friends car.
This was 2 days after the basketball game, and it's not even confirmed that it was the same cops..
The article in the OP is quite misleading too, he wasn't arrested and it wasn't because he beat them at basketball.

I agree with ya. Monthly mental exams are waaaaay over the top. I know you don't condone that crap, I worded it poorly but was trying to say you catch more flies with sugar.
