A worker at a Salt Lake City business is recovering after being struck by an errant arrow. Police say a property owner on a lot several hundred yards away from the man was target practicing when one of the arrows got away from him.
It happened this afternoon near 2600 West and Andrew Avenue, behind the Powder Tech building.
The arrow struck the victim in the lower leg. Police say the arrow only went in about a quarter of an inch. An acquaintance took the man to a hospital to be checked out. He is expected to be OK.
Officers cited the archer for discharging a projectile in city limits. Police say it's illegal to use any kind of weapon that sends out a projectile, including a bow and arrow, or even a sling-shot.
