MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI/ESPN) Harvey Updyke, the Alabama fan, who infamously poisoned Auburn's oak trees at Toomer's in 2010, is coming to Mobile Sept. 27 to allow fans to either dunk him in a booth or throw pies in his face, ESPN.com reporter Mark Schlaback reported Wednesday night.

The reporter said Updyke would be taking part in a charity event.

"T.J. Hodges, an Alabama fan living near Chicago, is organizing the event to help raise money for the family of John Oliver, a boy from outside Mobile who died of cancer in July," the article said, "Hodges started a nonprofit organization, Roses From Linda, after his mother passed away that helps raise money for family members to visit terminally ill patients before they die."

Schlaback reported Hodges also enlisted the help of former Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and his mother, Dee Dee, to help organize and raise awareness for the event.

Updyke pleaded guilty to unlawful damage of an animal or crop facility in 2013. A judge sentenced him to six months in jail and served 76 days after receiving credit for time already served.
