TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- A charge of assault with a dangerous weapon against 28-year-old Jesse Thornhill of Tulsa has been dismissed.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Friday. An entry in the court docket says the charge has been dismissed.

The charge stemmed from an incident on July 13, 2010, when Thornhill allegedly tried to run over his landlord with his car.

Thornhill's mug shot gained worldwide attention for his body art and "horned" implants.
