SEATTLE — A White Center woman has been charged with a hate crime after posting a video on Facebook that prosecutors say shows her tailing a Hispanic woman in her car, railing against the other driver for being “Spanish privileged” and threatening to ram her vehicle.

Our news partner The Seattle Times reports that 48-year-old Sandra Jametski has been held on $500,000 bail since her malicious harassment arrest early last month.

King County prosecutors say she followed a neighbor as the neighbor drove to her child’s school — and that she recorded her racist rant on her cell phone.

WARNING: The video contains graphic language

Charging documents say Jametski continued recording as she confronted the neighbor at the school. Prosecutors say Jametski blamed one of the woman’s children for causing a car accident a year earlier, though police records show Jametski was at fault.

Jametski has pleaded not guilty. Her attorney declined to discuss the case.
