Harvey Updyke, the man allegedly responsible for poisoning the Toomer's Corner oak trees, was arrested in Louisiana on Sept. 18 and charged with terrorizing. He was trying to return a lawn mower to a home improvement store and became angry when the manager wouldn't credit him the full $150, the police report says. When the arresting officer suggested Updyke call a lawyer, the Alabama football fan refused, saying "he would take care of this on his own," the Times-Picayune reported on its website Monday. Hammond Police spokesman Lt. Vincent Giannobile said, according to the paper...

"He had a sad story," "He said he was going to prison anyway, he had a bad heart, and he didn't care. He kept insinuating that he wasn't going to take no for an answer."

I doubt he graduated from High School and that is giving him credit for Middle School (questionable).

My son and I were in Auburn, Al for last Saturday's game between LSU and Aubur. as we went by Harvey's poisoned trees at Toomer's Corner, I told my son," The only thing missing is Harvey's lynched body hanging from the biggest dead tree." What a waste of air!

I assumed that he would just poison his grass instead of cutting it.
