This guy has some serious mental issues. He's just one blown fuse away from detonation it would seem.
A college football fan accused of spiking mature oak trees with an herbicide in Birmingham, Ala., was arrested at a Louisiana Lowe’s store following an argument at the returns desk over a lawn mower refund.
The Hammond Daily Star reported that Harvey Up**** Jr., 63, demanded $150 for returning a lawnmower to Lowe’s on Sept. 18 , but the store manager told him he was only due $110. After the situation escalated, store personnel called the police.
Up**** was booked into jail after making comments deemed threatening to Lowe’s employees. He is currently awaiting trial in Alabama, where the University of Alabama football fan stands accused of poisoning a group of venerable oak trees at Auburn University following a 2010 national championship game between the two teams. Auburn, which beat Alabama 28-27 in the Iron Bowl, traditionally decorates the trees following big victories.
Up**** has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to criminal mischief, desecrating a venerable object and other charges. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.
