TULSA, OK -- A Tulsa man whose mug shot made him famous around the world was charged in court with a felony count of assault with a dangerous weapon Wednesday.

Tulsa Police say 28-year-old Jesse Thornhill tried to run down his landlord in his '96 Ford Windstar van earlier this month in the 1200 block of South Delaware Place.

Thornhill appeared before Judge Carl Funderburk in Tulsa County District Court. His next court date is scheduled for August 2.

Thornhill's horn implants, tattoos and piercings led his story to run in numerous web sites such as Perez Hilton's blog and online publications in North America and Europe.
