Wendi L. Wright, 35, faces charges of felony reckless endangerment after investigators said she trailed Congressman David Kustoff and his aide, Marianne Dunavant, down Highway 45 in Weakley County on May 8.
When they arrived at their destination, Wright reportedly ran to Kustoff's vehicle - now parked in the driveway - and "screamed while banging on the auto and reaching in".
"I've been led to believe she was upset over a vote he had cast involving health care", Plunk said.
She is being charged with a reckless endangerment felony.
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.
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.

When the congressman left the meeting, he and his aide were followed by a woman, according to the Weakly County Sheriff's Department.
The Weakley County Sherriff's Department first reported the incident on Thursday. Sgt. Marty Plunk said that according to eyewitnesses, Wright cursed a lot at the congressman, but witnesses largely couldn't understand what she was saying. She is out of jail on $1,000 bond.
By the time deputies arrived, the woman had left. She will be arraigned on Monday, May 15 in Weakley County General Sessions Court. No one at the sheriff's department could be reached for comment.
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", Kustoff said in a statement after his vote.
Kustoff's office declined to speak about the incident.
