Booker said that he and some of his friends were on Lake Monroe just south of Bloomington and watched a lunar eclipse when a group of white men claimed they were entering private property without permission. According to Booker, one of the men was wearing a hat with the Confederate flag.
Booker said he apologized. When he and some of his friends later talked to the group to “fix things”, he said five white men attacked him.
Booker has released a series that looks like cell phone videos of the event. The videos contain strong language and gestures.
A clip shows a white man in a red shirt fixing or holding Booker against a tree. While someone outside the camera can be heard shouting “let him go”, the man holding the other man turns to the camera and tells them to go. The other man and a woman are all white, next to the man in the tree and yelling. At some point, a shirtless man tries to take the camera out of the person shooting the video.
Another video calls the same shirtless man off the camera as “diaper head (extensive)”. The off-camera man said, “What do you really mean to me?” and the shirtless man repeats the statement.
