New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) caused a bit of a traffic problem Monday on his way to the beach.

A man decided to tail Christie’s motorcade after he became angry when he claimed a vehicle following the governor’s SUV cut him off, the Newark Star-Ledger reported.

Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak told the Star-Ledger that the governor was en route to his summer residence on the Jersey Shore when the man started following the motorcade. The motorist wasn’t driving aggressively, he said.

A plain clothes state trooper in the vehicle following Christie’s eventually pulled into a police department parking lot to talk it out with the angry motorist, according to the newspaper. No charges were filed.
