Here is the Facebook post, where Booker explained everything with video:
Booker revealed that he with others has planned to observe the night sky for lunar eclipse near Cutright Recreation Area. There they saw a drunk white man followed them on a vehicle and said they were camping on private property.
He said, “We relayed to him that we believed the organizers had received permission from the property owners to cross, but apologized and went on to our beautiful site just off the water without any further incident.”
“When we arrived we told the event organizer of the encounter and it was relayed that the individual wasn’t the actual property owner and the organizer apologized,” he added.
He also told others not to get into that area which is on the way. But the white man and the group claimed to own the public beach and blocked it with a boat and ATV. When they tried to cross it, the group of white yelled ‘white power’ as per Booker.
The video he shared shows that the white man accused Booker of the altercation. But he said that and he and the folks tried to calmly leave it as the members of the group are becoming more aggressive. After this, two of them attacked from behind, and later other members of the group joined them.
One of them is a teenage girl who screamed to let go. This scream gathered people from nearby regions and recorded the video. Booker also said, one of the white men said, “Get a noose”.
After this whole event, Booker and his friend eventually packed up their things, left the site because of fear.
He also said that he complained to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources but they refused to do any arrest and kept the incident under investigation.
