In Wednesday’s hearing for Harvey Updyke Jr., who is accused of poisoning the Toomer’s Oaks, Circuit Judge Jacob A. Walker III revoked Updyke’s bond due to an outstanding writ of arrest in Louisiana.

At the beginning of the hearing, Kisha Abercrombie, assistant district attorney, asked for Updyke’s bond to be revoked, citing how he had been arrested in Hammond, Louisiana in September for an altercation he had with a Lowe’s employee regarding a lawn mower he had returned and that the arrest was a violation of his bond. However, Updyke's attorney, Margaret Brown, maintained that there was no stipulation that there was a proper arrest and that the arresting officer had claimed Updyke said things that he had never said. Updyke was charged with simple assault in the case, although he was initially charged with making terrorist threats. According to Abercrombie, he failed to appear in court on the charge on Nov. 15.
