Harvey Updyke's Attorney Laments Accused Tree-Poisoner's Apology

Oh, Harvey, Harvey, Harvey. 

Harvey Updyke, the man accused of poisoning Auburn's Toomer's Corner oak trees, just can't stop calling Paul Finebaum. You wish somebody would just cut him off, but talk radio isn't in the business of preventing pileups. His latest appearance featured a vague apology sort of for you-know-what but sort of not, a development about which attorney Glennon Threatt is not exactly delighted:

Threatt did say Updyke's on-air statement about his attorneys not wanting him to call into Finebaum's show anymore was "accurate."

"Certainly, if it's not going to help him," Threatt said of Updyke ignoring his advice to stay off the show. "If he hadn't called into Finebaum he never would have been arrested."    

Back in May, Updyke pleaded not guilty due to mental disease. His trial was set for this summer but has yet to be rescheduled.
