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.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

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...

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.

HEY!

I am the owner of that stick!

The "last tree in the universe belongs to ME!"

This crack-pot STOLE it from me! But that means...

...that means he MUST have found some way around my defenses... unless... could it be?

Do I have a traitor in my compound?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

"Rondell Bailey...told deputies he wanted to offer the object, which he called the "last tree in the universe"..."

I think he was trying to pull a fast one on the deputies 'cause I'm looking out my window here, and there's still a few more trees out there.

A guy like that usually just leaves without putting down any roots.

Groan...

Only in Oaklahoma. The police were just doing their best to fight graft— it goes against their grain.

I think we should just leaf it there.

P.S. The last tree in the Universe has got to be pretty valuable. Maybe he should have tried e-bay instead?

He ought to be able to get off on a technicality. After all, he had just offered “the last tree in existence”, an obvious confession; the brick thrown at the jail window is clear evidence of remorse.

The hair should serve as the apology.

He probably just needs a job with a living wage and Obama should take responsibility. Time served would be fair.

The police were stumped by his behavior. The guy is probably pining for his freedom about now.

Ooops, time for me to log out now..
