On Wednesday, Florida resident Jorge Jove clearly couldn’t stomach the sight of an AT&T work truck parked out front of his house. Naturally, police say, he retrieved a revolver and started shooting out the tires and engine.
Jove, a 64-year-old retired firefighter who lives in the city of Hialeah, was captured on video methodically shooting out all four corners of the unblinking truck. He moves around it calmly, reloading his gun several times, firing off at least 18 shots.
Here’s more from the Miami Herald:
Jove then walked to the second bucket truck and began shooting at the front of it, reloading the gun several times. Meanwhile, one of the AT&T workers could be heard calling police to report the shooting.
“He’s shooting the truck right now,” said a man who identified himself as Derrick Taylor, a technician with AT&T. “There’s a guy shooting the tires and shooting the engines and everything.”
As Taylor spoke to the dispatcher, Jove continued his attack on the trucks.
Police confirmed that Jove was apparently “upset” that the trucks were parked in front of his driveway, the Herald reports.
No injuries were reported, per local WSVN.com, and charges are pending. A neighbor told the news station that she was stunned by the incident, calling Jove an “impeccable man.”
Remarkably, the AT&T worker stood out in the open, filming Jove throughout the episode. I would’ve at least ducked behind a tree or something.
Update, 11:04 a.m.: I forgot to add that charges are pending against Jove. Thank you to everyone in the comments for pointing this out.
