How to use pointing in a sentence?

  1. Paul Castro:

    I look in the rearview mirror on my right and I see( the suspect's) car. I had let three cars go, I start moving and he starts moving into my lane. I don't let up and he is getting closer, he pulls up to the cones, opens his car door and starts yelling at me, he's yelling at me and he's pointing at me. All I did was, I motion and I say' I've already let three cars go.' The cop tells me to stop, so I stop, he goes, so he won. He took the lane.
