ALVA, Okla. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A Texas man shown in a surveillance video crashing his pickup into the front desk of an Oklahoma hotel and nearly hitting two women is facing charges.
According to the Enid News and Eagle, the incident happened last Thursday at Alva Comfort Inn and Suites after a bill dispute. Police say 62-year-old John Parsley of Gonzales, Texas, wanted a refund on two transactions.
Officer Wade Suffon says he offered to talk to a manager but Parsley drove off and crashed into the hotel.
The video shows the truck back up after the initial hit and slam into the lobby again. Hotel worker Rupal Christian said she thought Parsley was going to kill her. “I don’t know how I jumped [out of the way]. It’s just God’s hand. It’s just… the angel of the Lord protected me.”
Parsley faces two felony counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and one count of malicious injury to property over $1,000. It’s not clear if he has an attorney.
