TN woman facing reckless endangerment charge; accused of following congressman, his aide

Wendi Wright

According to BuzzFeed News, when Kustoff was leaving, Wright attempted to accost him about her "grievances" over his healthcare vote, but he quickly got in his vehicle along with his driver and personal aide.

On Monday afternoon, Kustoff attended a meeting at the University of Tennessee at Martin with the Dean of Agriculture, Todd Winters, and others in the agriculture department, Plunk said.

Inside the auto with Kustoff was an aide and a driver.

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.

'Wright exited her vehicle and began screaming and striking the windows of their vehicle and at one point reached inside, ' the police report states.

Her dogged pursuit of their vehicle caused the passengers to fear Wright would run them off the road, the Weakley County Sheriff's Department wrote in a press release.

She allegedly blocked his auto until police were called. "We promised the American people we would repeal and replace Obamacare, and today, the House voted to keep our word and provide relief".

A failed one-timer caused Marc-Andre Fleury to be out of position, and Kuznetsov had an open net from a sharp angle. Backed up to the precipice against a rival that's tormented them for decades, the Capitals finally punched back.

Recently, Kustoff voted to repeal Obamacare and replace it.

"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.

Someone called 911, but Wright left before deputies arrived. Investigators were able to track her down because she posted about the incident on her Facebook page.

She was found and taken into custody on a Weakley County arrest warrant.

She was jailed but has since been released on $1,000 bond.

Kustoff's office declined to speak about the incident.
