(Newser) – Most teens would throw some sort of fit if you took away their cellphone/iPod/video game ... but this girl reportedly went primeval. Washington state authorities arrested a 15-year-old girl for allegedly shooting her dad with an arrow after he grounded her and took her cellphone away last night. The father, who told officers that his daughter used a hunting bow, was airlifted from their rural, forested area to a medical center in Seattle and listed in serious condition.

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 ... which we're guessing is way worse than being grounded.
