| No Comments

An Idaho man charged with slapping a 19-month-old boy on a Delta flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta on Feb. 8 no longer has a job, news sources report.

ABC News reports that according to the toddler's mother, Jessica Bennett, the 60-year-old man, Joe Hundley, leaned over, used a racial slur, and slapped the boy in the face when he started to cry on the flight's descent. Bennett says the slap scratched her son's face and caused him to cry even louder.

According to ABC News, Bennett told local news stations in the Twin Cities that Hundley appeared to be drunk on the plane and he was acting obnoxiously throughout the flight.

A report from NBC News states that Hundley worked for Unitech, an aircraft component manufacturer owned by AGC Aerospace and Defense. A statement from AGC called Hundley's behavior "offensive and disturbing" and said the he was no longer an employee of the company.
