Girl Shoots Dad With Arrow When He Confiscates Cell Phone

| by Kate Wharmby Seldman

A 15-year-old girl shot her father with a hunting bow when he took her cell phone away, then wouldn't let him use the phone to call 911.

Washington State's KOMO-TV reported that the 35-year-old man crawled to a neighbor's house for help after his daughter shot him. He was airlifted to a hospital and is now listed in serious condition.

The girl tried to evade police by running into the woods with the bow and 35 arrows. It took a SWAT team to get her into custody.

I wonder if the girl was exacting poetic justice on her father when she wouldn't let him use the phone, after he'd taken her phone away? He definitely got a taste of his own medicine, and then some. But a hunting bow? This girl is hardcore.

That's some backwoods weaponry right there. Surely there were some previous signs that this girl shouldn't be left alone with a bow and arrows -- if ex-boyfriends haven't been shot in the ass already, they should definitely watch out.

At least, after she gets out of jail. Wonder if they'll let her make her one phone call.
