Harvey Updyke's Attack Story: Not The Most Convincing Thing Ever

After reading Glennon Threatt's version of Harvey Updyke's alleged encounter with an unruly mob at the Tiger Express gas station in Opelika, Alabama, it's hard not to think the whole attack was completely fabricated. Not that you weren't already sort of assuming that, of course, but this does not sound like any fight I've ever heard of:

Somewhere right outside of Opelika Harvey stopped at a gas station to get a drink and some gas, and when he got out of his car, it went black. He woke up on the ground. He had been hit in the head with something. He wandered into the gas station in pain, and they directed him to a local emergency room.    

Whenever this story veers too close to the actual mental ongoings of Updyke himself, it becomes way less entertaining. The man has serious mental health problems, whether he was actually attacked by a person Wednesday or not.
