A man in Florida, USA was caught on camera shooting at two truck mounted platforms being used by telecoms company AT&T… because they were parked outside his house.
The AT&T employees were working on telephone lines in Hialeah when Jorge Jove approached them as he was upset that they were parked in front of his driveway. When he was told that they would move when the repairs were finished, he went back into his house and returned with a gun.
Jove then walked to the first truck and shot out all four tyres, then shot at the engine radiator of the second truck. Slightly odd given that he wanted the trucks to move. He has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and two counts of felony vandalism.
None of the linesmen were hurt. This is certainly not one of the risks highlighted in IPAF operator card training.
