Texas Tesla harassment

So this is new… My husband and I just got back from a trip to Home Depot. On the way home, white Ford transit van cut us off dangerously close with no signal. It happens. But then when my husband moved over a lane they (elderly couple) slowed down (they were on the driver side) and began yelling at him, “Do you smoke dope? The guy who makes these smokes dope! You dope smoker!” He then cut behind us and began yelling at me. My husband rolled up the windows and zoomed away. As I type this, it sounds hilarious, but it was actually really frightening. Of course we have video of it all and his plate number, but I don’t think it’s the type of thing police want to waste their time on. I’m not sure if it was a crazy one off or if this is a new thing—harassing EV drivers. In my area, there are lots of Tesla owners but also a lot of people who thing renewable energy is malarkey. We’ve had the Tesla 4 years and this is the first time anything like this happened. People have grumbled about “oil” under their breath but never had anyone scream and recklessly drive around us like that.
