Harvey Updyke Has Been Summoned To Court For Failing To Pay For Toomer’s poisoning
Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports
Famous tree poisoner Harvey Updyke, the Alabama fan who admitted to poisoning and killing the iconic Toomer’s Oaks on Auburn’s campus, has been summoned back to court because he hasn't been making his restitution payments. Per AL.com...

Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes told WRBL-3, a TV station in Columbus, Georgia, that Updyke has paid less than $5,000 toward his nearly $800,000 restitution bill and frequently misses monthly payments.

Earlier this week, officials found Updyke in Louisiana and served him with a court order summoning him to a Lee County courtroom on Oct. 30 to explain why hasn’t been making payments.

“Harvey Updyke has never left my radar,” Hughes told the TV station in a story posted today. “We have been keeping an eye on his payments, or more specifically his non-payment, and he has made exactly two payments for a total of $200 in the past year. Because of that, we have been looking for him for close to a year, and we finally found him.”

At the end of the day....its trees. The guy will never pay that back. Chase him all you want, he can't give you what he don't have. Find another way.

"he can't give you what he don't have" He CAN make the monthly payments. To say otherwise is bull shite. Does he have a cellphone bill? A cable bill? Does he eat out? Does he go on trips? A 100 different ways I can promise you that he's spending money on "WANTS" instead of necessities. The court allows him a home and transportation and that's it. He can make the monthly payments. He did this shit, now pay the piper.

He should have to make restitution but it isnt like he killed a person. I think its hilarious but still wrong and I dont condone the act. He deserves all he gets but some criminals get penalized less for murder.

I'm pretty sure he goes by the handle of CajunBama on this website.

I can’t believe some wealthy Gumps won’t step up and help out a fellow Tide fan. What a shame.

Poisoning trees out of fabricated spite does not warrant aid.

They were looking for him for over a year? Did they check Finebaums basement?

He may have lost a friend or two, but he probably gained quite a few closet admirers up in gumpland. For a guy that is a supposed outcaste, he seems to be treated like a celebrity when he goes to their events.

The photo in that twitter post needs to be a “deal with it” meme....but in all seriousness, are we really surprised that a guy who would do something so trashy would have trouble paying $800,000?

Who the hell wouldn't have trouble paying $800,000?
