Need help understanding a situation.

Hello are cat is 1 year 7 months old we have had him 1 year and 5 months. Never been aggressive. He is not a cuddler but when he's awake never leaves my side always at my feet loves our whole family.
He has an indoor cat and allowed to go out on a leash.
So his behavior has changed a little over the past few days I have noticed him yelling in the evening. So yesterday evening I noticed a tail going under a trailer in our backyard. I pushed our cap back to slip out the door and he managed to slip out with me charge 2 the trailer about halfway turned around hissed at me and came charging towards me I grabbed him and pinned him down he continue to hiss and growl and scratch. We managed to get him inside and he continued to hiss and growl. Finally went to go hide. This morning he seems scared hissing at me. And would continue to sniff me and even the area that I have been in. He seems to be doing much better right now.

I have never been a cat person and doing my best to try to understand them. He has been the best cat. He is nurtured.

Any thoughts? Recommendations? Thank you all so much!

Forgot to mention the reason why I had grabbed him to pin him down. I freaked out from a dream that I had a night before where he jumped the fence and was attacked by dogs and did not survive. A lot of things ran through my head and seconds

He is neutered?
If you saw a tail, maybe another cat stirring up the hormones. You could be redirected aggression.

Thank you. Was just curious about all the smelling he was climbing my legs sniffing. Also went to my bed and sniff the whole area?

Could be territorial insecurity. Even neutered cats can feel defensive and vulnerable if another cat invades their space.
It may take him a few days to calm down. Perhaps keep him inside and try to distract him with toys every time he heads for a window.

I agree about the redirected aggression, although that usually dissipates after a few minutes. Combine that with pinning him down, and it may take quite some time for you to regain his trust.
