Woman jailed after striking wheelchair-bound boy

DALLAS (AP) - Authorities say a 23-year-old woman has been arrested after a scuffle with a wheelchair-bound 13-year-old boy at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.

Mikka (MEK'-ah) Shardai Cline, of Waco, was charged with injury to a child in connection with the struggle over a soccer ball on Tuesday night.

The boy's uncle said he was trying to retrieve the ball, which he had purchased for the boy, from a bush on hospital grounds.

Cline and her sister were also trying to get the ball.

The Dallas Morning News reports the boy had a pre-surgical medical halo screwed into his skull.
