VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A Clark County sheriff’s deputy accused of assaulting his teenage daughter in a struggle over a cellphone was given a two-day jail sentence.

The Columbian reports (https://goo.gl/yuT7FB ) 45-year-old Timothy Boardman of Vancouver pleaded guilty to domestic violence disorderly conduct in Clark County District Court stemming from a November altercation at his home.

He initially faced fourth-degree domestic violence assault but the charge was amended as part of a plea deal.

Boardman was given credit for two days already served in jail and ordered to have chemical dependency and mental health evaluations and avoid contact with his daughter.

Court documents say Boardman grabbed the teen during the incident and threw her down when she said she didn’t have his cellphone.

A sheriff’s spokesman previously said Boardman was placed on paid administrative leave and that an internal investigation was underway.
