Mans Phone Saves Him From Bow & Arrow Attack

Updated: Jul 7, 2019

An Australian man was casually holding and loading his bow and arrow in front his driveway, while another man decided to take a picture of the odd scene. Apparently, bow & arrow owners are camera-shy and take acceptation to people exposing them.

The Aussie pointed the arrow and fired it at the guy taking the picture, piercing his phone, which hit him in the face due to impact.

The shooter was arrested at the scene “with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage”.

People are crediting the phone for saving this mans life, but what about the aim on this guy? There is absolutely no way someone that shows off their bow & arrow at 9 a.m. isn’t a master or certified archer.

The best part is both these guys know each other. It could just be a bow & arrow owner sending a message to not interrupt archery training and to never sneak up on someone who has a cocked bow & arrow ready to go.

I’m sure if he wanted him dead, he’d be dead.

On the other hand, he owns a fucking bow & arrow and plays with it on his driveway, so this guy might have a screw or two loose. Good to know that Hawkeye is off the streets... He was granted bail and is set to appear in court on April 15th.
