Hotel Guest Rams Truck Through Lobby Because His Credit Card Was Declined

They should add attempted murder to these charges:

Stunning video released Monday shows an angry man ramming his pickup truck through the lobby and into the front desk of an Oklahoma hotel as two women dive for safety at the last second.

John Edward Parsley, 62, of Gonzalez, Texas, was held on $1 million bond Monday night in the Woods County Jail on two felony counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and one count of malicious injury to property valued at more than $1,000, according to court records.

The incident occurred Thursday in the town of Alva, about 110 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. No one was injured, but the lobby of the Alva Comfort Inn and Suites was severely damaged.

The full video, from three security cameras, was provided to NBC News by Kingson Christian, the hotel’s manager. In it, the driver of the 2006 Sierra GMC can first be seen talking with a police officer outside the hotel entrance.
