A man is facing two felony charges after driving his pickup toward another man and striking his parked motorcycle, court records show.

Henry Furnell Stewart, 43, of Oklahoma City, was charged Thursday in Oklahoma County District Court with assault with a dangerous weapon and malicious injury and destruction of property.

Stewart is accused of driving his pickup toward Johnny Manos on April 16 and destroying Manos' motorcycle by knocking it from a parking space in front of a convenience store at 1245 SW 29.

Manos told police the motorcycle cost $40,000 and said the frame was damaged. Manos and another witness said Stewart drove his pickup at a high rate of speed and hit the motorcycle on purpose, police reported.

A probable cause affidavit did not state what prompted the alleged crimes.

Stewart has two prior convictions in Louisiana for burglary and drug possession, records show.
