Florida School Bus Aide Accused of Child Abuse

A 70-year-old former school-bus attendant faces charges for child abuse after she beat and bit a teen she said had bullied her.

A camera on the bus captured the incident. In the video, the accused, who is listed as 4-foot-7 in her arrest report, confronts the much taller 14-year-old alleged victim, striking, biting and wrestling with him.

The accused was apparently set off by the teen's roughhousing with a younger boy on the bus. The teen playfully flips the younger boy over a seat, and the boy's feet hit the accused.

The accused told police that she acted in self-defense.
