Woman Allegedly Chased, Threatened Congressman in Car After Town Hall

"But, I think the basis of all of it was a health care vote that he had cast that she was upset with".

The woman then exited her auto, began screaming, hit the windows of the victims' vehicle and even reached inside it, according to investigators.

The incident happened on May 8 when Congressman David Kustoff was at a meeting on the campus of UT Martin. When his vehicle stopped moving, Wright got out of her auto and began berating him.

A Sheriff's official suggested to BuzzFeed that she did it because she was displeased with the Congressman's recent vote in support of the American Health Care Act.

Rep. David Kustoff, R-Tenn., participates in the House Financial Services Committee meeting to organize for the 115th Congress on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017. Authorities didn't say if Wright attended the town hall or why she followed Kustoff, who represents Shelby County.

According to a release from the police department, those in Kustoff's auto felt threatened by the vehicle behind them and told investigators they believed Wright was trying to force them off the road.
