UPI News Service, 05/02/2018
Jenelle Evans is accused of pulling a gun during a road rage incident in Bolivia, N.C., while her 8-year-old son, Jace, was in the car.
The "Teen Mom 2" star pulled the firearm on a man she followed home, saying he was aggressively tailgating her, according to a Brunswick County Sheriff's Office report obtained by Us Weekly.
"He's been tailgating me the whole time in traffic -- would not stop -- and then he races in front of me and purposely slammed on the brakes at 70-something miles an hour," Evans told police in a 911 call obtained by the New York Daily News.
The reality star, 26, called police to report the driver who she says nearly forced her off the road.
"My son ... his head almost got whiplash and almost hit the dash," she told the dispatcher. "That's how bad I had to slam on the brakes."
The man said he was trying to pass Evans on the road as she was blocking traffic.
He said Evans followed him home and hit two vehicles and a mailbox in his yard before pulling out the gun.
Evans has been arrested 15 times for offenses including driving without a license and heroin possession.

She shares Jace with Andrew Lewis. She is also the mother of son Kaiser, 3, with Nathan Griffith, and has a 15-month-old daughter, Ensley, with her husband, David Eason.
Eason was fired by MTV in February after posting homophobic remarks on Twitter.
