Man accused of poisoning Toomer’s Corner pleads insanity - Opelika, AL

Man accused of poisoning Toomer’s Corner pleads not guilty at hearing | CollegeFootballTalk

Harvey Updyke, the man accused of poisoning the trees at Auburn’s Toomer’s Corner, has pleaded not guilty to state charges for reasons of (snicker) “mental disease or defect.”
Updyke’s lawyer, Glennon Threatt Jr., also said the preliminary hearing set for May 26 has been waived due to a procedure on Updyke’s back that prevented him from traveling.
Updyke did not receive federal charges, but was indicted by a Lee Co. (AL) jury last week on  two felony counts of first-degree criminal mischief, two felony counts for unlawful damage, vandalism or theft of property from a farm animal or crop facility and two misdemeanor counts of desecrating a venerated object.
