No one was seriously injured in the incident, which caused more than $100,000 worth of damage.

Parsley was reportedly upset that his credit card was declined twice at the hotel, requiring him to pay in cash.

The incident report obtained by the Enid News said Parsley told the staff that he was going to “run his truck over them and the property.”

Parsley, from Gonzalez, Tex., was jailed on a $1 million bond and charged with 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.
