An Arizona father has been arrested for allegedly picking up his 4-year-old daughter by her throat, while he was 'celebrating 4-20' by smoking marijuana, police said.

According to the probable cause statement, Joshua Angell, 31, was smoking 'high-grade weed' on April 20, and after his daughter soiled herself, he picked her up by the throat to change and clean her. Her face struck a door jamb, injuring her cheek and one of her eyes.

Police said the alleged abuse was discovered, after the girl's mother took their child to Mountain Vista Hospital.

U.S. Marshals took Angell into custody in Chandler about 12 p.m. on Thursday.

He was booked into Maricopa County Jail, and will be extradited to Pinal County for arraignment on July 30, according to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.
