A man is out of a job after he was charged with slapping a toddler on a flight earlier this month.
The boy’s mother, Jessica Bennett, told the FBI their Minneapolis-to-Atlanta flight was on final descent when the boy started to cry due to the altitude change. Mr. Hundley “told her to shut that [N-word] baby up,” FBI special agent Daron Cheney said in a sworn statement, according to the Associated Press.
Mrs. Bennett said the man then slapped her son in the face, scratching him below his right eye.
Mr. Hundley’s attorney, Marcia Shein, said he will plead not guilty. The charge carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail.
