He was released after serving 1/3 of his time, being paroled in the year 1992.

Booker reportedly had a real life fight with his fellow wrestler Batista. Apparently Dave Batista was bragging about his rapid success and fame in the sport. Though a lot of wrestlers did not like the boasting, it was Booker who spoke his mind which led to an alleged bloody and bruise-filled fight.
