Australian man blocks arrow with mobile phone

Mobile phones truly can be life savers - especially, it seems, when an arrow is hurtling towards you.

That was the case for a 43-year-old man in Australia who came under attack by another man, according to police.

The incident began when the attacker, carrying a bow and arrow, confronted the man outside his house, police said.

The arrow was allegedly fired after the resident raised his phone to photograph the confrontation - only for the device to become an unlikely shield.

"Gorilla glass", bro. It will stop an arrow but will also crack from a 3 ft. drop

If he hadn't been on it he may not have wandered on the range.

Lol what? Sure we've had some idiotic charges in the past, but we aren't 'American' bad. Not yet anyway. :lol:

Certainly should be charged with attempted murder, but law enforcement here is getting weaker.

Aztek is just a hater who picks on Australia because our gun laws worked. Don't mind that sad little man.
