CAPE CORAL, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — A local teenager was arrested after allegedly shooting his mother with a crossbow.

According to WINK-TV, a 17-year-old boy was arrested for shooting his mother with a crossbow on Sunday, after an argument erupted between the two.

Since the arrow did not have a pointed tip, the woman only sustained bruises from the shot. In addition to firing the weapon at her, though, he allegedly shoved her into a wall, causing a head injury.

The mother was reportedly intoxicated and uncooperative with authorities.

In addition to assaulting his mother, the teenager also went after his mother’s boyfriend, threatening to kill him when he asked the riled child to leave.

He then reportedly punched his mother’s boyfriend repeatedly until others present restrained him.

The teen was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, domestic violence, battery domestic violence, misdemeanor battery and criminal mischief.

He was transported at the time to the Juvenile Assessment Center for processing.
