Man Slaps Crying Baby on a Delta Air Flight (VIDEO)

Map SlapsA man slaps a crying baby on an Atlanta-bound flight while yelling a racist epithet at the infant boy, and for his effort gets tossed in handcuffs and charged with assault.

The incident took place on a Delta Air flight from Minneapolis on February 8. The baby was crying as the flight was nearing its landing wen Joe Rickey Hundley of Idaho grew enraged at his crying, The Associated Press reported.

The boy’s mother, 33-year-old Jessica Bennett of Minneapolis, said Hundley was sitting next to her and then slapped the crying boy in the face, giving him a scratch under his right eye.

As he slapped the crying baby, Hundley told Bennett to “shut that (n-word) baby up,” a police report said. Several passengers then came to the mother’s aid.

The 60-year old man was then arrested for slapping the baby and charged with simple assault.

A 60-year-old Idaho man has been charged with simple assault for allegedly slapping an infant aboard an Atlanta-bound flight.

His lawyer urged people not to rush to judgment.

“We think that it is important to let the case develop, and we’ll see how it all comes out,” Hundley’s attorney Marcia Shein said Friday.

Hundley’s child is adopted, and they were on the way to Atlanta for a funeral, the Daily Mail reported.

After the man slaps the crying baby, police also found that he was intoxicated and carrying a concealed weapon. And his attempt to quiet the baby didn’t quite work, either — the police report noted that the baby cried louder after being slapped.

      Well that child should not have to worry about saving money for college. That man will be paying for that and a house as well.

    4. how was he able to get a concealed weapon on the plane?

      that old man is so lucky he wasnt sitting next to me because i would been the in handcuff also, for slapping him.. 2 wrongs dont make a right but really… learn some d*** manners babies cry especially when planes are going to land…

    6. The fact that he slapped a small child is horrible enough, but what I’d like to know is how the hell he got on the plane with a concealed weapon!! My unopened bottle of water is taken away from me and an unopened plastic cup of applesauce because it was 4.5 oz and over the limit, and this guy gets on the plane, drunk and with a weapon!

    7. Such a loser…. I would of hit the baby also but made him shut up!!

    8. Assault upon a baby by a drunken stranger coupled with the fact that it was a hate crime should come with a stiff prison penalty short of death. This man is not a decent human being and should be removed for a definite period of time from a society that considers itself to be civilized.
