HOLLY HILL, Fla. - A Holly Hill man has been arrested after police say he shot his sister with a BB gun because she made him a phallic birthday cake.

Christopher Taft, 21, has been charged with aggravated battery and battery in the Sunday incident.

Police said Taft shot his sister in the buttocks with a BB gun in retaliation for his sister making him a birthday cake in the shape of a penis.

Taft told police he thought it would be funny to shoot his sister with a BB gun as a joke and did not intend to hurt her, according to the report.

The BB was embedded in the victim's skin and she refused to be transported, saying she would go to a hospital herself, police said.

The victim told police she didn't want to pursue criminal charges.

Taft was taken to Volusia County jail.
