On Sept. 13, Huffman was driving in suburban West Palm Beach, when she allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at the driver of a Toyota Tacoma. The driver of the truck, a 52-year-old woman, later told investigators she had no idea why the woman pulled the gun out and pointed it or said she would kill her, using a racial slur.

According to the report, Huffman admitted to the road rage incident but gave no reason for singling out the woman.

Another driver who witnessed the incident called 911 and followed Huffman to her house to get her tag number.

When deputies arrived at the home, Huffman let deputies search her vehicle. Inside, they found an unloaded 9 mm pistol under the passenger seat, according to the report.
