OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) The University of Alabama fan who poisoned Auburn University's landmark oak trees at Toomer's Corner has been released from jail and cleared to leave the state.
Harvey Updyke Jr., 64, left the Lee County jail in Opelika on Monday morning after serving 76 days following his guilty plea. Attorney Andrew Stanley said Updyke was on his way to Louisiana where he will live with his wife, Elva.
"He's very sincere. He wants to go back to Louisiana and never wants to be heard from ever again," Stanley said.
