Hopefully there was more to Jorge Jove’s motivations and subsequent actions than he didn’t appreciate those damn trucks parked near his house, because if that’s all it is he sure picked a poor way to make them leave.
Jorge Jove didn’t like the AT&T work trucks in front of his Hialeah home Wednesday morning. So, he retrieved his revolver and began shooting out the tires and the engine, police said.
Though Jove began firing to kill only a vehicle, a Hialeah sergeant says he saw Jove fire at an AT&T worker in a raised bucket lift. Hialeah police arrested on a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm and criminal mischief. He posted $30,000 bond. Police seized the handgun from Jove, who doesn’t have a concealed weapons permit, according to the arrest affidavit.
Thankfully nobody was injured by any of the estimated 18 shots that were fired.
And just to make things a little more confusing, Jove, who admitted to police that he went “bananas,” said that though he didn’t want the trucks there in the first place because he feared they would damage his pavers, he also didn’t want them to leave before the police arrived.
Whatever you say, dude. He seems like the sort of fella I’d think twice before asking for a piece of grilled cheese sandwich from, if you know what I’m sayin’.
