SoCal man treed by imaginary pumas

South Pasadena authorities say they were called out to rescue a man who was treed by a pack of imaginary pumas.

Police Sgt. Brian Solinksy tells the San Gabriel Valley Tribune that officers got a report around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday that a man was struck in a tree on St. Albans Avenue.

He says the man had been drinking and believed he was being chased by a pack of mountain lions. He climbed the tree to escape and got stuck 20 feet in the air.

However, authorities say the man managed to climb down on his own when firefighters arrived.

Solinksy says the 41-year-old Los Angeles man was arrested on suspicion of being drunk in public and was held until he sobered up.
