A white woman faces felony charges after police said she slapped an 11-year-old Black child in the face and called him a racist slur following a go-kart crash at a Florida amusement park last weekend.

Haley Zager, 30, was driving a go-kart at Boomers in Boca Raton on Saturday night when the boy accidentally bumped his vehicle into hers, according to a police report.

Authorities said the suspect confronted the child after the ride, struck him the face and hurled a racist insult at him in front of at least three park employees.

Zager reportedly admitted to hitting the victim, but she denied using a slur.

The boy had a swollen eye and was treated by paramedics at the scene.

While searching the woman, police say they found a container of prescription pills in her underwear and charged her with multiple drug crimes.

She was taken into custody and charged with one count of cruelty toward a child and four counts of illegal possession of a controlled substance, jail records show.
