Jenelle Evans seems to be losing her cool way too often. Latest is this episode where the Teen Mom star was caught up in an intense altercation with another driver on the road in Bolivia, North Carolina, last week. Although the reality star has been accused of allegedly pulling a gun on the driver, her team claims that they have proof that she is in the right.

However, the driver, who was involved in the incident and who wished to remain anonymous, told in an interview with Radar online that the TV star came close to 'getting shot' during the episode which took place on April 26, while Evans had her 8-year-old son Jace in the car with her the whole time.

“It was something out of this world. I really couldn’t believe it,” he told Radar. “It was a road rage incident, she lost her cool.” He described Evans driving, saying: “She was running on the outside lane, texting on her phone, when other cars would try to pass her she would speed up. I don’t think she realized how she was driving because she was on her phone.”

He shared with the publication that even after he had slowed down his car, Evans continued to follow him up to his private property road in rural North Carolina. 

“She drove down my dirt road, way down in the woods to my house. I didn’t know who was inside the car at the time. It could have been a carload of guys…the windows were tinted.”

The driver was sure that something would eventually go wrong and made sure he informed his family about keeping themselves safe if the need arose. His cousin who is a law enforcement officer saw Evans with the gun in her hands, which he told police according to the report filed with regards to the incident.

“If she pulled that gun out she wouldn’t have made it,” he said. “She don’ know how close she came to getting shot!”


However, a source close to Hollywood Life, who is also a rep for Evans, has come forward and said that Evans is in no way to blame for the incident and that she has concrete evidence on the same.

The reality star's rep even confirmed that they have the whole incident recorded on tape, saying “Jenelle followed the instruction of law enforcement and 911 operators and will let the footage speak for itself when it airs.”
