Bama fan who killed Auburn trees not paying up
LINK

quote:

AUBURN, Ala. -- A prosecutor wants to know why a University of Alabama fan who pleaded guilty to poisoning landmark oak trees at Auburn University isn't making court-ordered restitution payments.

Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes tells WRBL-TV that Harvey Updyke is being ordered to appear in court Oct. 30 to explain himself.

Updyke served more than 70 days in jail in 2013 and was ordered to pay about $800,000 in restitution after admitting to poisoning trees at Toomer's Corner in Auburn. Fans traditionally rolled the trees with toilet paper after a win.


quote:

Hughes says Updyke has paid less than $5,000 and often misses payments.

Updyke is a 70-year-old former Texas trooper who now lives in Louisiana. He posted a Facebook video recently saying his monthly rent was going up almost $200.

What a surprise. The law won’t do much about it either. It is what it is at this point

Alabama fans should start a gofundme to see that AU sees the money they’re owed

I mean he's complete white trash. He probably doesn't have much disposable income that can go towards that.

The craziest thing about Updyke is that he's not even from Alabama. He grew up in Texas and Florida and lived most of his life in Texas until he retired.

How does someone become a crazy t-shirt fan and not even be a native or resident* of that state?

(*yes I know he was living in AL when he did it)

I waited for an hour with him until the Bama Buses rolled in to Tiger Stadium. He doesn't have a "Ms. Terry Blind Side",

which means he is probably the only person in the world who is exactly how he is portrayed in the media

I waited for the LSU buses to roar into Byrant Denny in 2001, so I figured to live a full life I would need to how it is on the other side.

The Judge can reduce his monthly rent and living expenses to $0 with quickness

He seemed like such a upstanding and well-off fella. I’m kinda perturbed by this situation
