A woman is facing felony child abuse charges after police say she slapped an 11-year-old Black child and called him a racist slur.
Haley Zager and the boy were driving go-karts at the Boomers amusement park when they accidentally collided. They say Zager confronted the child after the ride and, in the presence of three Boomers employees, slapped him in the face, using a racist slur to justify the strike.
Zager admitted to officers that she struck the child, who had a swollen eye, but denied using the slur. Police say they also found a container of pills in her underwear and charged her with illegal possession of prescription drugs.
Zager was released on her own recognizance.
