In a statement to the Dothan (Ala.) Eagle— his hometown newspaper — White wrote that he encountered an "aggressive driver" while exiting near Tennyson Parkway.

White said the other driver was following him closely, then pulled up next to him and yelled threats and racial slurs.

"Simultaneously while doing this he began to reach towards his glove box and that is when I flashed my weapon," White said in the statement to the Eagle.
