Yeah, that made them move!
Cellphone video shows 64-year-old Jorge Jove calmly walking around the first truck as he shoots at all four tires on Wednesday.
Jove then walked to the second truck and opened fire. He reloaded the gun several times.
“That’s insane. That’s really hard to believe,” said AT&T worker Michael Martin.
He wasn’t the only worker who felt that way.
“That doesn’t seem like it makes much sense,” said worker Jeff Reardon. “I think maybe a psychological evaluation would have been in order.”
On the video, you can hear a worker calling 911 as Jove shoots over and over again into the trucks, loading his high-powered revolver three times.
“Somebody is up in the bucket right now and they can’t come down because he’s shooting the truck,” one of the workers told 911.
Arriving police reported that they saw Jove fire at the man in the bucket at the top of a utility pole. Jove was booked on multiple counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. A police report says he told detectives that “he went bananas and wanted to stop (the workers) from leaving.”
Jove confessed to firing as many as 18 shots into two AT&T work trucks, and allegedly fired at one worker.
Hialeah Sgt. Carl Zogby said in an email that Jove was upset because the trucks were parked in front of his driveway.
He was released straight from jail on bond Thursday without having to go before a judge. Authorities say charges are pending. It’s unclear if Jove has a lawyer.
“It was a bondable offense. That was our decision, our detectives’ decision,” Zogby said.
Had Jove appeared in court, a judge could have attached restrictions to his release, including a requirement that he surrender all weapons he might have.
