    FBI: Man Slapped Crying Toddler On Delta Flight

    Suspect used racial slur before striking fellow passenger's son


    FEBRUARY 15--After demanding that the mother of a crying toddler “shut that Reggie baby up,” a male passenger allegedly slapped the two-year-old across the face as a flight prepared to land in Atlanta last Friday evening, The Smoking Gun has learned.

    The shocking February 8 incident aboard Delta Airlines Flight 721 resulted in Joe Rickey Hundley, 60, being charged with simple assault, according to a U.S. District Court affidavit. Hundley, seen at right, is president of an aircraft parts manufacturer headquartered in Hayden, Idaho.

    In an interview, Hundley denied striking the toddler or using a racial slur, though he did acknowledge that he “asked the mother to quiet the child.” Hundley, who said he was traveling to Atlanta to visit a hospitalized relative, described himself as “distraught” on the flight, during which he said he consumed a single alcoholic drink.

    As detailed by FBI Agent Daron Cheney, Hundley was traveling to Atlanta from Minneapolis in seat 28A on the MD-90 twin-engine jet. He was seated next to Jessica Bennett, who shared seat 28B with her two-year-old son Jonah.

    Bennett, 33, told investigators that the “aircraft was in final descent” to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport when her child “started to cry due to the altitude change.” Bennett added that she “was trying to get [her son] to stop crying, but he continued.”

    At this point, Bennett recalled, Hundley used the racial epithet as he told her to shut the child up. He then allegedly “turned around and slapped” the toddler in the face “with an open hand, which caused the juvenile victim to scream even louder.” The slap, Bennett said, “caused a scratch below [the child’s] right eye.”

    After Hundley hit the child, Agent Cheney reported, Bennett received assistance from several other passengers, including Todd Wooten, who was in seat 16C. Wooten told agents that he “heard derogatory language coming from the rear of the aircraft” and got up to investigate. “According to Mr. Wooten,” Cheney noted, “he saw Joe Rickey Hundley strike” the toddler.

    Hundley was charged this week with simple assault, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Atlanta. If convicted of the misdemeanor count, he faces a maximum of one year in prison.

    According to Virginia state court records, Hundley was arrested in 2007 following a fight with his girlfriend. Initially charged with simple assault, carrying a concealed weapon, and public intoxication, Hundley subsequently pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor assault rap. Hundley told TSG that the weapon he allegedly brandished was a wine corkscrew.

    I would hope that this guy could get harsher punishment, but that seems unlikely.

    There's nothing worse in life than being stuck on a plane with a crying infant. I understand his rage.

    He won't. He doesn't want to give the impression that he is obsessed with black people. :coffee:

    1000%. If he actually hit the child, that's very bad, but it unfair to force your screaming wailing shrieking little no-neck-having monsters upon the rest of us, especially sitting right next to them. srs.

    It wouldn't be prudent for him to comment on the case against him at this time.

    I believe that from now on, regardless of the race of the baby, that all babies should be referred to as Reggie babies.
