A woman named Snape who claimed to be Harry Potter has been accused of killing a judge and injuring a young boy in a hit-and-run.
Nastasia Snape, 23, allegedly mowed down Sandra Feuerstein, 75, on the pavement and injured a six-year-old boy in Florida, US.
She fled the scene on Friday (April 9) in Boca Raton and later crashed five miles away in Delray Beach, police said.
Emergency services arrived and an officer approached the car as she appeared to be convulsing or having a seizure.
Investigators said Snape – who has the same surname as the fictional Hogwarts professor Severus Snape – “stared into space” before she got out of the car and said she was okay.
But CBS reports that police claimed she soon started to scream and fight with paramedics inside an ambulance, claiming she was “Harry Potter”.
Medics had to give her the anaesthetic drug ketamine to calm her down.
Officers later searched her car and found the designer drug known as T salts, which can cause erratic behaviour, according to a police report.
Her bag was also searched and had several small containers with “THC Cannabis” labelled on them, investigators claimed.
Authorities said Snape’s car had been seen “driving erratically” at about 10am.

The motor is said to have then veered across the road and mounted the pavement, where she hit Ms Feuerstein.
She carried on driving and also hit a six-year-old boy crossing the road, police claimed.
The condition of the child is not known.
Ms Feuerstein, a federal judge from Islip, New York, was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Snape was also taken to hospital where she allegedly told police she “wasn’t in a crash”.
A police report said an officer described her behaviour as “erratic”, as she was “calm one moment then screaming”.
Snape, of North Lauderdale, Florida, was taken into custody.
She faces charges of vehicular homicide, hit-and-run involving death, and leaving the scene of an accident with injury.
