US teen threatens to kill dad after 'sexting' argument

Washington, Feb 26 (ANI): An 18-year-old boy in the US has been charged with threatening to kill his father after their telephone tussle over 'sexting.'

The incident happened when Christian Rider's father refused to pick him up from a friend's house because he found nude photographs Rider had sent to his girlfriend via his phone, according to MyFoxTwinCities.

Neighbours said Rider had spent part of the previous summer learning how to shoot a bow and arrow with his father, but his dad probably never expected that his son would threaten to use the weapon against him, reports Fox News.

Rider sent a text message to his father saying, "I'm going to kill you if you come anywhere near me. One of us will be going to the hospital when u get home."

According to investigators, Rider then knocked an arrow on a compound bow and waited for his father to come home. However, the father avoided a confrontation when he arrived and instead called the police.

Rider was released on 50,000 pounds bail and is still living with his family. (ANI)
