Woman Allegedly Chased, Threatened Congressman in Car After Town Hall

Posted May 14, 2017

When they pulled into a driveway, Wright got out of her vehicle and screamed at them while hitting their auto windows, authorities said. Wright allegedly followed them, and made them afraid that she'd force them off the road.

But as he and aide Marianne Dunavant left the engagement, Wright followed them in her own auto, driving so close on Highway 45 that Kustoff and Dunavant were "in fear of being forced off the roadway", sheriffs said.

The Weakley County Sheriff's Department said in a news release that Wendi Wright followed a vehicle occupied by Republican U.S. Rep. David Kustoff on Monday night after a town hall meeting with constituents.

It comes just as Turkey sent a high powered delegation to Washington to explain to the Americans Ankara's misgivings in detail. The YPG militia says the decision is "historic" and a "sign of confidence" in the group, in a statement released Wednesday.

Police say she also obstructed the vehicle by standing in front of it so it could not leave, but she left the scene before officers arrived and after a 911 call was placed. "But, I think the basis of all of it was a health care vote that he had cast that she was upset with". However, the congressman left in his vehicle and "that's why she began following him", according to Plunk.

According to the sheriff's department, Wright was identified after she posted details of the incident on Facebook.

The congressman's aides and the sheriff department contend that Wright scared the passengers into driving to the home of a person who they knew. She was arrested and released on a $1,000 bond.
