(NBC) - Stunning video shows a disgruntled hotel guest ramming his vehicle through the lobby of an Oklahoma hotel.

The incident happened Dec. 10 at a Comfort Inn and Suites in the city of Alva.

According to published reports, the John Edward Parsley, 62, of Gonzalez, Texas, was upset that his credit card had been declined twice.

Security video shows the man slam his truck into the front entrance of the hotel and crash into the front desk, where two women frantically dove for safety.

The driver told hotel staff he drove into the hotel because "they thought he was bluffing, and he proved he wasn't."

Parsley 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.
