He got out his vehicle and tried to take a picture of the man who then allegedly fired an arrow at him.

On Wednesday, a 43-year-old man pulled into his driveway in the small village of Nimbin. The phone hit him in the chin which gave him a small laceration "that didn't require medical treatment", police said.

Officers from Richmond Police District were called and arrested a 39-year-old man at the scene.

He was taken to the local police station and charged with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.

The alleged attacker is now out on bail and is set to appear in court in April.
