Repo man shot at; suspect arrested along I-95 in Dania Beach, reports say – Sun Sentinel
Miami-Dade police said they were questioning Max Kenneth Dieuveil, 32, of Miami, who was stopped by Hollywood police north of the Griffin Road exit.
The car being repossessed by tow truck driver Colby Gonzalez was a 2006 Nissan Altima that Dieuveil told police belonged to his wife. It was parked outside the couple’s Miami-Dade home near Northeast 199th Street and 14th Avenue at the time. Dieuveil told police he thought it was being stolen.
According to Gonzalez, he got the Altima around 2 a.m. Thursday and was making sure it was secured properly to his tow truck.
He said he then stopped at a gas station on Ives Dairy Road to inform police about the repossession. As he was leaving the station, someone in a black Hummer swerved in front of the truck and started shooting at him, Gonzalez told police.
Gonzalez said he feared for his life as he drove toward I-95 but the Hummer continued chasing him and shots were fired on the northbournd lanes, police said.
“I was getting on I-95 to go north, [the] gentleman started shooting at me, and I called the police and didn’t stop, kept going until the cops caught up with me,” Gonzalez told WFOR-Ch. 4.
While police said Gonzalez wasn’t hit by the gunfire, WSVN-Ch. 7 reported that his truck was struck.
Dieuveil told police that when he heard his wife’s car being towed, he grabbed his handgun and drove around looking for the car. When he saw it at the gas station, Dieuveil told police he fired to scare the tow truck driver.
