Watch: Elderly Man Shoots Tires of AT&T Truck — Is This Wrong?

A Facebook video of an elderly Florida man has gone viral.

In it you can see an obviously upset man storming over to two AT&T trucks, revolver in hand, and start unloading on the tires of one truck.

He proceeds to the second truck and shoots at the engine multiple time.

The video was recorded by an AT&T worker on the scene in Hialeah, FL, which is south Miami.

Hialeah is known for its gang violence, but this is a whole other level.

Jorge Jove was arrested on Wednesday after he opened fire on two AT&T trucks parked outside his Hialeah, Fla., home. Cellphone video shot during the rampage shows the 64-year-old shooting out the vehicle’s tires and engine.

Hialeah Police Detective Carl Zogby told the Miami Herald that Jove “was upset the trucks were parked in front of his driveway.”


The man who recorded the video is AT&T technician Derrick Taylor and can be heard talking with police as Jove shoots the trucks with his Ruger .357 revolver.

“He’s shooting the truck right now,” Taylor said in the clip. “There’s a guy shooting the tires and shooting the engines and everything.”

According to an affidavit, obtained by the Miami Herald, Jove doesn’t have a concealed weapons permit. Police responding to the call seized his gun.

No one was injured in the shooting, though an officer responding to the incident reported that Jove fired shots at the technician in the bucket lift. He missed, according to the eyewitness who was not identified further.
Jove denied that allegation.
The former Miami-Dade firefighter was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and felony vandalism. The outlet reported Jove was released from jail on Thursday after posting $30,000 bond.


Clearly this man was completely wrong to do this and was rightly arrested.

He gives all gun owners a bad name.

Should he have his rights to own a gun revoked?
