Harvey Updyke ejected from Alabama softball game

This just can’t get any stranger. Seriously.

Harvey Updyke, the man charged with poisoning the Toomer’s Corner oaks in Auburn, was thrown out of the SEC softball tournament in Tuscaloosa this afternoon.

Reports of the incident lit up social media sites and the University of Alabama released a statement a few minutes ago.

“Mr. Harvey Updyke was asked by University of Alabama officials to leave today’s softball game and he complied. Several months ago, the University issued a formal directive to Mr. Updyke stating that he is not to come to the University of Alabama campus,” the statement reads.

“Mr. Updyke has no affiliation with the University of Alabama and does not represent the institution in any way. The University of Alabama will have no further statement on this matter.”

Meanwhile, Alabama beat Georgia 1-0. The Tide plays Florida at noon Saturday for the SEC title.
