SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah man is accused of threatening his teenage daughter with a rifle during an argument that began over a game of Battleship.

Police say the 68-year-old man was with his 17-year-old daughter in a rural area when he accused her of cheating and broke the game.

Utah County authorities say the girl tried to leave the trailer where they were playing, but the man dragged her back by her hair and pointed the loaded rifle at her head.

The Daily Herald reports she called 911 from a cellphone and authorities traced the GPS signal to a campsite. She escaped from the trailer after deputies arrived.

The Deseret News reports the father was arrested on suspicion of intoxication, aggravated assault and other charges.
