Auburn tree killer not paying
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. Updyke poisoned the famed trees in 2010 with a pesticide and then bragged about his crime on the Paul Finebaum radio show. Auburn city officials allowed the trees, which were used for toilet paper rolling following Auburn football wins, to remain until after that year’s spring game where they had their final roll.
Fans traditionally rolled the trees with toilet paper after a win.
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.
