FBI: Man slapped crying 'n****r baby' sitting next to him on a plane 1 hr ago 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. [Source] ..
