ALVA, Okla. - A dissatisfied guest drove his truck through an Oklahoma hotel last week, according to authorities, over a billing dispute.

According to KFOR-TV, 62-year-old John Edward Parsley was upset about a $264 pre-authorization charge on his debit card.

The charge showed up after his card was declined  and he was forced to pay cash for his room.

The hotel said it later removed the charge but the man was still angry.

After the hotel and the customer called police, the man hit the gas, driving straight into the lobby.

No one was seriously injured.

Parsley is now facing charges.
