Citizen journalist Nydia Tisdale was assaulted and arrested by Captain Tony Wooten during the Dawsonville Republican Rally at Burt's Pumpkin Farm in Dawson County, Georgia on Saturday, August 23, 2014.


The accused, Nydia Tisdale, did resist, obstruct and / or oppose Captain Tony Wooten, a law enforcement officer in the lawful discharge of his official duties by offering violence to said officer by elbowing him in the right cheek area and kicking him in the right shin.


According to Johnny Burt, he instructed Wooten to get Tisdale to stop making a video recording of the speakers. When she refused, Burt said he ordered Wooten to make her leave.

"She tried to hit Tony with the camera and he had to remove the camera from her hand and she slapped him in the face and I saw that. Tony only done what he was asked to do by the property owner and that was me," Burt said.

Had she cooperated with the request to stop recording, Burt said she could have stayed.
