    A Broward woman found herself behind bars after police say she hit two children near a school bus after she was hit in the head with a ball.

    Officers arrested 46-year-old Linda Josue and charged her with two counts of child abuse without great bodily harm for the incident that took place Tuesday off of Southwest 4th Street in Fort Lauderdale.

    According to an arrest report, one of the two victims accidently struck Josue with the ball as they were getting on the bus when she became "angry" and kicked one of the victims after they fell on the ground while trying to get away.

    After that, Josue allegedly struck the second victim while she was moving her child to the front of the line to board the bus. Both victims suffered scratches as a result of the incident.

    Fort Lauderdale Police detectives contacted Josue at her home and took her in for questioning, where she admitted to striking the kids. She was given a $7,500 bond for the charges during her first court hearing.
