Teen daughter shoots dad with hunting bow, cops say

15-year-old allegedly upset because her father grounded her and took her phone away

 

TAHUYA, Washington — Police in Washington state have arrested a teenage girl for allegedly shooting her dad with an arrow after he took her cell phone away.

Mason County detective William Adam said the man told officers that his 15-year-old daughter used a hunting bow to shoot him Wednesday evening after he grounded her and took the phone.

After being shot, he allegedly had to crawl to a neighbor’s house to call 911, because she wouldn’t let him use the phone, KOMO-TV reported.

The man was airlifted from the rural, forested Tahuya area to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and listed in serious condition, according to KOMO.

Adam said the girl fled into woods behind her home with the bow and arrows but police surrounded her and arrested her for investigation of first-degree assault.

Tahuya is about 35 miles west of Seattle.
