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 ( ) 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.
