TGIS: Thank God It's Schedenfreude! (233)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Wednesday, August 19; link good at time of posting):
Authorities said a 23-year-old woman was arrested after a scuffle with a 13-year-old boy in a wheelchair at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. The woman was charged with injury to a child in connection with the struggle over a soccer ball on Tuesday night.

. . . .

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

. . . .

[The woman] struck the boy's halo, causing him pain, according to the police report. The woman was being held in the county jail on $1,500 bond Wednesday afternoon.
