Angry Woman Arrested After Chasing GOP Congressman After Town Hall

Written by Philip Hodges

It was after a GOP town hall at the University of Tennessee that Wendi Wright chased after Congressman David Kustoff (R-TN) on the highway, making the representative and his aide fear that they’d be run off the road.

Kustoff and his aide Marianne Dunavant eventually pulled into the driveway of someone they knew, and 35-year-old Wright parked behind them, got out of her car and started yelling at the Congressman and banging on the car windows. She even reportedly reached her hand in the vehicle during the confrontation.

Someone called 911, and while the Weakley County Sheriff’s Office deputies were on the way to scene, Wendi Wright fled.

Police were able to nab and arrest her, because she had posted about the incident to her Facebook account. (That was smart.)

The Jackson Sun added:  “She has been released from custody on $1,000 bond, and is expected to be arraigned in Weakley County General Sessions Court Monday on charges of felony reckless endangerment.”
