He told us he was leaving the restaurant when a group of black men near the door called him a "tree honkey." He said he had never heard that, but it "tickled" him, so he turned to ask them what it meant. He said that is when one man hit him, and another hit him in the head with a stun gun; he fell, and others began kicking him in the head.
