OKLAHOMA CITY, - Authorities in Oklahoma said a man who crashed into a parking lot walked into a jail and offered a stick he called the "last tree in the universe" as payment.
Oklahoma County sheriff's deputies said Rondell Bailey walked into the downtown Oklahoma City jail with a stick and told deputies he wanted to offer the object, which he called the "last tree in the universe," in exchange for dropping any possible charges against him, KOCO-TV, Oklahoma City, reported Wednesday.
The deputies said Bailey left after being told the stick was not an acceptable form of payment and threw a brick through a jail window.
Investigators said they discovered a white powder suspected to be methamphetamine during a search of the suspect's truck.
Bailey was arrested on destruction of property and drug charges.

a man who crashed into a parking lot
How did he manage that ???
parking lots are flat and on the ground in TN...
We drive on them here...
Last time I was in Oklahoma City was 1998..
The parking lots were the same as here then but they could have changed over the years...
I am guessing this guy voted for Obama.
Sounds like he reads too many Algore books.
“Investigators said they discovered a white powder suspected to be methamphetamine during a search of the suspect’s truck.”
You don’t say?!!!
Any word on how the parking lot is doing?
You beat me to it Nana. I was wondering the same thing.
drugs... trees... vandalizing.... hmmmm
Whats his DU screen name?
Well, strictly speaking, if it’s just a stick, it’s not really a tree anymore.
The guy knew he was going out on a limb with the offering, but police said he was barking up the wrong tree.

No Ernest T....ALL the potatoes.
