Guy Drives Through Lobby

Hotels are almost always full of stories to share given the number of people that pass through its doors and spend time there. The hotels I've worked with have had their share of bad guests and one hotel had its exterior walls shot several times. This is by far the craziest story I have read that involves a hotel:

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.

According to the incident report, Parsley was angered because his credit card was declined twice at the hotel and he had to pay cash, the newspaper reported.

Christian, the manager, told investigators that "Parsley stated it wasn't his first bad experience with a hotel manager who was also Indian," according to the incident report. It said Parsley then told the staff that he was going to "run his truck over them and the property."
