ALVA, Okla. (AP) – A man accused of crashing his pickup into the front desk of a northwestern Oklahoma hotel and nearly hitting two women is now facing additional charges involving a county jail incident.
The Enid News & Eagle (http://bit.ly/1XXBqMJ ) reports that 62-year-old John Parsley of Gonzales, Texas, was charged April 21 with injuring or burning a public building. It wasn’t immediately clear if Parsley has an attorney.
An affidavit says a surveillance video shows Parsley pulling out the toilet from his cell and dropping it on a sink, breaking both.
Parsley was charged in December with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and malicious injury to property over $1,000 after police say he crashed into the Alva Comfort Inn and Suites after a bill dispute.
He has pleaded not guilty in that case.
