WINTERHAVEN — Things got a bit strange here this weekend.

According to county Sheriff's Office activity logs, a Winterhaven man claimed a "big hairy white male wearing black" tried to kill him with a tree Saturday morning.

The man, Connors Sharon, told police that a "big hairy white male" was ramming a tree near his home in a white Toyota truck, allegedly trying to cause the tree to crash onto his home.

The man failed in his attempt to fell the tree, according to the logs.

By the time sheriff's deputies arrived at 1:30 a.m., the man had apparently fled.

There were no arrests.

In another Winterhaven incident, a man in a wheelchair was found slumped on the railroad tracks near the California/Arizona border.

The man was found by the U.S. Border Patrol at 8:04 p.m.

There was no further information on the case.
