I don't have much information for you on how to teach him not to do those things, but I use "no thank you" and "I need some space" around here to stop unwanted behavior in the moment. Both for me and for the kids, so the finger walking would have gotten a "no thank you" and me taking a step back, then just continue what I was doing before. Not listening would have resulted in a time out. He may not have done it on purpose, but I put up a boundary and he needs to stop at that point. If any of my kids use "no thank you", that means someone is taking their toy, hurting them, etc... and I intervene in order to prevent someone getting hurt. If they say "I need some space", it means just that - back up and quit following me! Lol....
