Washington man shot with arrow, daughter arrested

TAHUYA, Wash. (AP) -- Authorities in Washington state say they're arrested a teenage girl for allegedly shooting her dad with an arrow after he took her cell phone away. 

Mason County detective William Adam says 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.

It was reported that he was airlifted from the rural, forested Tahuya area to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and listed in serious condition.  

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

Tahuya is about 35 miles west of Seattle.
