Northern Calif. city councilman knocked out, dumped in his car near horse racing track By The Associated Press

SAN PABLO, Calif. (AP) A city councilman in Northern California says an attempt to say hello went sour when an unknown man knocked him out and later dumped him at a horse racing track.

The Contra Costa Times reports ( that San Pablo City Councilman Paul Morris went to greet a tenant July 3 at a property he manages in nearby Richmond. Morris says a man suddenly burst from the door screaming "get out" and punched him.

Morris says he passed out after hitting his head on concrete.

Morris says the next thing he remembers is waking up about 90 minutes later in the passenger seat of his Mercedes-Benz at Golden Gate Fields, a race track about five miles away.

He pushed the car's SOS button and paramedics took him to an Oakland hospital. He was released July 5 with a slight concussion.

Richmond police are investigating, but no arrests have been made.
