Joe Rickey Hundley allegedly used a racial slur and slapped a toddler during a flight

FBI: Man slapped crying 'n****r baby' sitting next to him on a plane

At some point, we’ve all been trapped on a plane with a crying child. All you can do is put on headphones and suffer through it (and hope the kid falls asleep). Faced recently with this conundrum, Joe Rickey Hundley, 60, took matters into his own hand, according to an FBI probe. Aboard a flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta, a reportedly intoxicated Hundley did not enjoy the wailing from the 19-month-old son of Jessica Bennett, the woman sitting next to him, as the plane was descending. So after demanding that Bennett “shut that n****r baby up,” Hundley allegedly slapped the child across the face, leaving a scratch under the tot’s right eye. Hundley denies both the slap and the slur, but he's been charged with simple assault.

That's just wrong: hitting a little kid and calling it a slur. Being drunk's no excuse either. Sheesh!

Sounds like it should assault and battery of a minor, along with public intoxication if indeed it can be demonstrated he was drunk.

He was drunk?

The parents would be justified in shooting him.

Man accused of slapping and racially abusing crying toddler on Delta flight | Mail Online


As reported by The Smoking Gun, Hundley then 'turned around and slapped' the toddler in the face 'with an open hand, which caused the juvenile victim to scream even louder.' According to the mother, the slap 'caused a scratch below [the child’s] right eye.'
Hundley was charged with simple assault in federal court in Atlanta this week. If convicted the man faces a maximum of one year in prison.
The 60-year-old, who is the president of an aircraft parts manufacturer based in Idaho, denied slapping the child or using racial language. He claims that he did 'ask the mother to quiet the child.'

Hundley said he was traveling to Atlanta to visit a hospitalized relative, described his emotional state as 'distraught' and that he had one alcoholic drink on the aircraft
However, Bennett told The Smoking Gun that she believed Hundley was intoxicated. The mother said that he 'reeked of alcohol', was 'stumbling around wasted' and he consumed several double vodkas during the flight

Bennett says Hundley told her that Jonah was too big to be a 'lap baby.'

Agent Cheney added that Bennett received help from other passengers on the Delta flight. Todd Wooten, who was seated 12 rows ahead, told authorities that he 'heard derogatory language coming from the rear of the aircraft' and went to see what was going on.
'According to Mr. Wooten,' Cheney wrote, 'he saw Joe Rickey Hundley strike' the child

Hundley pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault in a Virginia court in 2007 after he was arrested following a quarrel with his girlfriend.
He was first charged with simple assault, carrying a concealed weapon, and public intoxication. Hundley told The Smoking Gun that the weapon he was allegedly carrying was a corkscrew.

If that child was my son, I'd take care of the situation myself.

[no need to call the authorities]
