Amusement parks are slowly beginning to re-open, allowing kids to enjoy a nice day of roller coaster riding, and go-kart racing—or at least that’s what you’d think. Well, things got serious at an amusement park in Florida, when an adult white woman slapped an 11-year old Black child and called him a racist slur after his go-kart bumped hers.
At the Boomers amusement park, Haley Zager, 30, and the boy were driving go-karts, when they accidentally collided. Three park employees saw Zager confront the child after the ride and slap him in the face. She also used racial slurs to justify the hit.
Court records say Zager admitted to police that she did indeed hit the boy—who had a swollen eye—but says she did not use any racial slurs. Authorities say they also found a container of pills in her underwear and charged her with illegal possession of prescription drugs.
The 30-year old is facing felony charges and has been released from police custody.
