Harvey Updyke Pranked, Admits to Poisoning Trees

Harvey Updyke watched Alabama lose to Auburn in 2010. Harvey Updyke poisoned the Toomer’s trees. Harvey Updyke called Finebaum to admit and brag about it. Harvey Updyke got arrested. Harvey Updyke was labeled “just one crazy.” Harvey Updyke became a hero among many Alabama fans. Harvey Updyke, with help from his lawyer, denied poisoning the Toomer’s trees.

Harvey Updyke got pranked by an Auburn fan into thinking he was getting a free ticket to the 2012 BCS National Championship game and admitted to poisoning the trees over many Facebook messages, phone calls, and voicemails. Read, listen, and watch all of those here (WARNING: there’s a little language):

Did you notice that he continues to brag about his stardom throughout the calls? Who’s giving him that royal treatment? Yeah, just one crazy…

And I love that last voicemail from him. “War Dead Treegle,” he says. So remorseful, isn’t he?

Prank, video, and all things related done by @butler742.

Mr. Blogler

This is just for you and your friends. Please don’t tell anyone else, because I don’t think my lawyer would like it. The DA just called and changed the plea bargain. Now the least that they will take is 35 years in jail. I am dumb. Dumb as hell. But at least we have won 17 national championships.

…I want to meet whoever pulled this off, and shake his hand. Job well done. Its sad, though, that this doesn’t surprise me: both that Bammers wanted their picture with Updyke, and that Updyke has no remorse for his actions, just that he got caught. War Eagle.

I can make it happen. I may get a pic and autograph session set up to raise money for Toomer’s. Since bammers lust over a pic on anyone who farted at Bryant-Denny , why not raise money for the trees.

@butler742 03/12/2012 at 10:28 pm

That would be me. More to come.

vancejf 05/06/2013 at 1:50 pm

You sir, are a hero.

Well done.

Wonder if this can be used in court……

FlyAuburn13 03/06/2012 at 11:46 am

I doubt it, but I hope the jurors listen to it. This is unbelievable.

BigMoAU 03/07/2012 at 4:03 pm

If it can’t be used in court and then the jurors listen to it….that’s grounds for a mistrial and Harvey gets off free.

Dead Bear 03/06/2012 at 12:17 pm

Haha enjoy prison time Harvey. I’m sure it’s great knowing you will rot in there. I love it.

Leslie 03/06/2012 at 12:56 pm

WIN! This is freaking awesome!! Way to go guys…BRAVO!!!

@Aubielicious 03/06/2012 at 1:23 pm


This was amazing.

Aubie 03/06/2012 at 1:57 pm

Eat shit Updyke!

Rosco 03/06/2012 at 2:17 pm

Wonder what ‘ole harvy will be yelling while his cell mate is “working the night shift?” if you get my meaning. Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk.

Robert 03/06/2012 at 2:23 pm

Funny, although I don’t know ANY Alabama fans who think Updyke is a “Hero”. I teach outdoor environmental education, therefore I think he is a douche bag and I hope the most strick punishment for him.

The WarBlogler 03/06/2012 at 2:54 pm

I assure you, there are plenty that view him as a rockstar and hero.

Randy 03/07/2012 at 1:43 pm

How about all the Bammers who lined up to have their pictures taken with him down in New Orleans? I believe they would be some of the ones who would consider him a “hero.”

Trolltide 03/06/2012 at 2:42 pm

They are just trees? At least he didn’t hold someone up at gunpoint like AU players tend to do.

AUgrunt 03/06/2012 at 2:47 pm

The improper use of that question mark makes me believe you could drown by looking up at the rain. Dumb bammers….

AU Class 03/16/2012 at 7:12 pm

This comment is completely inappropriate. If you’re going to call yourself an Auburn fan, represent the university with more class and cut out the homophobic comments.

WarBlogle, you need to delete this embarrassing comment from your site.

AUrush 12/02/2012 at 10:11 pm

Your comment makes no sense? Auburn fans don’t idolize the AU players in the robbery like you and other bama fans idolize updike?

trolltide 03/06/2012 at 2:53 pm

Augrunt nice try. The question mark was used correctly. It’s OK little bro. One day you might not suck at life.

AUgrunt 03/06/2012 at 2:59 pm

LOL , ok dumbshittrolltide. Why are you on “little sister’s” fan blog? Do you not have anything better to do? Go play ” hide the cold finger” with Uncle Updyke.

WDE T 03/06/2012 at 3:32 pm

Thank you for serving as an example for those who didn’t believe that Bama fans could support Updyke. Go back to being an ignorant fan on your own blogs please.

CW 03/06/2012 at 3:15 pm

Good job. He is a hero to the bammers. They might not admit it but just look at the number of them that want their picture made with him. They are a sad lot.

Drainage 03/06/2012 at 3:28 pm

Good job. WDE.

THE WOLF 03/06/2012 at 4:16 pm

Please kind sir make sure the DA in Lee County gets this info. I am sure you did but if you haven’t a confession is pretty solid. This just confirms to me that the Bammer nation is the sorriest lot in the history of college football. That findbum bunch seem real happy with themselves. Ole Harvey is the dumbest bastard on the face of the earth. War Eagle to you sir.

AUgrunt 03/06/2012 at 4:19 pm

He is on hold right now for Finebaum !!

Robert 03/06/2012 at 4:59 pm

I could listen to this all day. What a dumbass.

AUgrunt 03/06/2012 at 5:10 pm

Damn , butler got hung up on. He will try tomorrow

Austin 03/06/2012 at 8:52 pm

Dude this might be a fake. It’s not a hard to impersonate Updyke’s voice and it’s even easier to forge that Facebook feed. It’s funny either way, but I highly doubt this was actually him.

AUgrunt 03/06/2012 at 9:14 pm

The contact on the FB seemed very legit. It had his daughter and family members on there. And what seemed to be legit pictures of him at a young age. Then I tried to set up a charity wrestling match between him and T.Spikes and he blocked me after a few messages. Then my friend butler742 went “Donnie Brasco” as a bammer and documented it. His end was as real as can be. And I have to honestly say that if it wasn’t Updick on the other end , then it was a damn good ringer FB page.

Steve S 03/06/2012 at 10:06 pm

Get your shirts now….beat the Iron Bowl rush!

sullivan013 03/07/2012 at 2:07 pm

I seriously doubt this man is sane, rational or even moderately intelligent. His entire thought process has a childlike emotional state that I would find immature in a three-year-old.

In other words, typical Bama fan.

Mia 03/08/2012 at 11:48 am

What I’m taking away from this…..

“No daddy, WAR EAGLE!!!!!!!!!!!!”……..I LOVE IT!

Enjoy those dead trees goat fuckers. You and the Bammers make me thank god I don’t live in that shit hole state.

@LSU Fan, we are good you aren’t here, too. :)
