I had a similar incident only with a female.
I was headed home from work, traffic was moving at the speed limit during rush hour. A lady pulls over in the shoulder of I20 and is yelling something at me through her window. There is not enough room for her to slip in in front to me, and she pulls back in behind my truck. I shrug it off, as I am on the phone with my sister the whole time. I pulled exit, and the lady is on my ass, literally under my bumper. She follows me as I turn. I let my sister know what was going on , and pulled into a busy parking lot. SHe does too. I roll down my window and ask why she is following me, she yells at me that I was driving too low in the fast lane, and that my truck smokes, and she is on the phone with the cops.
I told my sister to haven on, call 911 and they dont know anything about it. I tell the lady that I am in fact on the phone with 911, and she is not, I am leaving, she need not follow. 911 asks if I need an officer, and since the lady was not following anymore, I said no.
I dont really know what the lady thought she was going to accomplish, and my sister was shocked that a woman would pull some BS like that on a male in a lifted truck, not knowing if that male had a gun with them or not.
Just so happens, I was bringing my .40 home from the office, one of my coworkers had borrowed it for the weekend.
