Angry woman follows Tenn. congressman down highway

Police say the woman, 35-year-old Wendi Wright, followed Congressman David Kustoff and his aide, Marianne Dunavant, as they drove down Highway 45 in Weakley County, Tenn., Monday afternoon. When his vehicle stopped moving, Wright got out of her auto and began berating him.

A Tennessee woman is accused of following a U.S. Congressman after a town hall meeting and confronting him after he stopped his auto.

She was allegedly outraged over Kustoff's vote in support of the American Health Care Act. She was charged with felony reckless endangerment.

She also stood in front of their vehicle, police said, obstructing them from leaving, and left the scene before officers arrived after a 911 call was made.

"What she was saying was more cursing at the congressman and his aides", Sgt. Marty Plunk told WMC.

A woman found herself behind bars after she followed a congressman from an agricultural meeting, according to Weakley County Sheriff's Department.

Law enforcement later tracked down Wright because she posted a detailed Facebook account of the incident.

Wright is free on $1,000 bond and will be arraigned on Monday.

Kustoff and Dunavant called 911 but by the time deputies arrived Wright had left. Her first court appearance is scheduled for May 15.

The May 4 House vote paves the way for states to individually determine whether people with pre-existing conditions can enroll in state-operated health care exchanges created under Obamacare. No one at the sheriff's department could be reached for comment.

"I voted for the American Health Care Act because our current health care system is failing Tennesseans", he said in a statement following the vote.

Kustoff's office declined to speak about the incident.
