JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A man has been charged after police say he followed, threatened and fired shots at a repossession company who took legal possession of his semi-truck, according to The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
Police say the incident happened around noon on Druid Street, near Lennox Avenue.

The man then took possession of the truck and drove to a nearby residence where he was apprehended by police.
JSO says the man was charged with carjacking, aggravated assault and possession of firearm by convicted felon.
There were no injuries reported.
