It looks like Teen Mom 2 fans are about the find out, once and for all, what went down in Jenelle Evans' wild road rage incident back in May! While there was a lot of he said/she said going on at the time of the event, cameras were rolling, so we'll finally get some unbiased answers.
Starcasm first noticed that TV Guide had shared the date and description of the road rage epsiode, which will air on Monday, July 23, at 9 p.m. on MTV. All it says about Jenelle is that she "encounters an aggressive driver while taking Jace home," but fans know the story will be much more dramatic than that.
It all started when an unnamed driver complained to the Brunswick County police. The Sheriff’s Office Communication Center CFS report said that Jenelle "hit his truck, ran over his mailbox, and pulled a gun on him. She was driving blocking traffic, he tried to pass her on the inside like everyone else and she flipped out." The driver's report claims that she followed him all the way to his home and onto his private property, and he wants her "stopped and charged." The deputy's report says "Suspect [Evans] hit two vehicles in the yard and then she pulled a 10-84/G, [the code for 'suspect with a gun.']"
For her part, Jenelle said in her phone call to police that "He was tailgating me the whole way, I had my son in the car because my son was at therapy. He’s been tailgating me the whole time in traffic. Would not stop. Then he races in front of me and purposely slammed on the brakes at 70-something miles an hour. This guy is trying his hardest for me not to be behind him anymore. He is literally going crazy, swerving in and out of lanes." Of course, Jenelle didn't mention the gun or following him home, but she did include even more incriminating evidence against herself.
She said she was using Jace's phone because the driver "made [her] slam on the brakes so hard that [her] phone went flying," and "My son, his head almost got whiplash and almost hit the dash. That’s how bad I had to slam on the brakes." Jace is only eight years old, and kids are supposed to ride in the back seat until at leasr 12 years old. If he did hit the dash or the airbags went off, he could have gotten seriously hurt, and Jenelle would be responsible for that.
After the initial complaint, an eyewitness said they believed Jenelle to be the reckless one. "She was driving like a bat out of hell," the anonymous source told Radar Online. "There were little kids out there on the road. It could have caused a bad accident out there. She just drove straight out of there onto the highway. She was driving like 65/70 miles an hour on a dirt road. It was dangerous."
Of course, her husband David Eason just had to throw his two cents in to make matters worse. A week later, he claimed that she was acting in self-defense, because the man was trying to kidnap her. Yes, really. "You saw the old man's side of the story," he wrote on Facebook. "He tried to kidnap her."

Jenelle's TM co-stars also spoke out about the scary incident — prompting Jenelle to defend herself on social media. "Hey [Jeremy], that’s funny you don’t want a background check for all your guns but in order for myself to even obtain my gun I had a full background check. I’m legally allowed to have mine, but are you?" she responded to Leah Messer's ex-husband Jeremy Calvert who tweeted producer Morgan J. Freeman about what the network planned to do with the controversial star. "And you want me to do a background check because I own guns nahh," he added. Plus, her baby daddy Nathan Griffith was "frightened" by the news.
The incident caused so much controversy that fans weren't sure if the footage would ever see the light of day. Network execs were reportedly "furious" when they watched the dashcam footage. "The higher-ups — and not the show higher-ups, but the network execs — have the footage and are figuring out what to do with it," an insider revealed to The Ashley. "They’re extremely upset by what they’re seeing." Apparently they decided to air it, and we can't wait to watch it all unfold!
