Video has been released of what police say is a retired Miami-Dade firefighter shooting AT&T trucks parked on the road in front of his man's house.

The worker phoned police and described what was unfolding to dispatchers as if he couldn't believe what was going on.

Cell phone footage rolled as Jove, calmly walked to the first truck and shot out all four tires (left). The video shows that he reloaded the gun several times.

Police said Jove fired 18 or more shots, WSVN reported.

Taylor, who stood at a distance from Jove, told the dispatcher that another worker could be in danger.

Hialeah Police say the shooting happened in a neighborhood off S.E. 5th Place and 7th Avenue just after 11 a.m. Zogby said Jove then went into his home and started shooting at the trucks.

"There's a guy shooting at the tires, he's shooting at the truck and everything", he said.

"We're grateful nobody was hurt, and we're working with law enforcement in their investigation", an AT&T spokeswoman said in an email to Local 10 News.

Another worker was actually inside the bucket and was unable to come down as the man was shooting.

Police say Jove (pictured during his arrest) has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and two counts of felony vandalism.

Jove is a retired Miami-Dade firefighter, who worked with the department for 34 years.

While talking about Jove who is now in police custody and is being questioned about the incident, Zogby said: "We don't have any negative information about him, about any criminal history from any of his neighbors". He later bonded out of jail Wednesday evening.

Photos from the scene revealed trucks riddled with bullet holes, with one truck brandishing at least 10.
