Joe Rickey HundleyAtlanta, Georgia. It is alleged that on February 8th, Joe Rickey Hundley, 60, slapped a toddler that sat next to him on his mother’s lap as the plane they were both in descended from a Minneapolis to Atlanta flight. Who doesn’t hate crying babies in enclosed spaces?

According to the toddler’s mother, Jessica Bennett, 33, she was sitting in seat 28B on a MD-90 twin engine jet, with her son 2y.o. Jonah. Hundley was seated in 28A. As the jet went into it’s final descent, the change in the altitude bothered the toddler enough to make him cry.

Bennett recalled that as the child cried, Hundley used the “N-word” when referring to her child. The exact words were, according to the child’s mother: “Shut that nigger baby up.”

Hundley then reportedly turned around and slapped the kid in the face with an open hand, causing the baby to scream louder. Because nothing says quiet like a slap to a kid’s face. The slap, according to Bennett, “caused a scratch below the tot’s right eye.”

Todd Wooten, seated in 16C reported to the FBI Agent Daron Cheney (in flight) that he heard “derogatory language coming from the rear of the aircraft,” prompting Cheney to investigate. Cheney noted: “According to Mr. Wooten, he saw Joe Rickey Hundley strike the toddler.”

Hundley was travelling to visit a relative that is hospitalized and claimed to be “distraught” while on the flight. He also told authorities he consumed ONE alcoholic drink. Bennett, however, believed that Hundley was intoxicated when he boarded the plane, saying “he reeked of alcohol and was stumbling around wasted.” Bennett said that Hundley drank several double vodkas during the two-hour flight, and bitched to her about her son being “too big to be a lap baby.”

Hundley is charged with simple assault within maritime and territorial jurisdiction in the federal court in Atlanta. If convicted of this charge he faces a maximum penalty of one year in prison. Court records indicate he was also arrested in 2007 after a fight with his girlfriend, and was ultimately charged with assault, carrying a concealed weapon, and public intoxication. Hundley pleaded guilty to the assault charge and claimed that the weapon he had brandished was a “wine corkscrew.”

Hundley is the president of an aircraft parts manufacturer in Hayden, Idaho. He claims the whole incident is “an absolute falsehood.” Fancy words for “it’s a fucking lie!” However he has been suspended from his job, pending the outcome of the investigation.

I get the crying baby hating and all, but Hundley would’ve done wonders if he’d gotten the stewardess to bring the baby something to eat. A kid with food in its mouth usually shuts up. Now, it’s lawsuit time!

  • I don’t have kids, but if I did and someone slapped them all hell would break loose.

  • Evan Oswald

    if anyone older than about 16 slapped my 19 month old – i’d instantly go ‘county’ on them – after i come outta it, i’d be lucky if they didn’t have a shank stuck in them

  • Evan Oswald

    I’m pretty sure that wherever Joe Rickey Bobby is from they call’em “niglets” – and for that matter I bet ole Joe Rickey Bobby here wouldn’t have gotten up the courage if the kid’s parents weren’t crackers.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    I’d rather deal with a crying baby than a drunk entitled fuckwad.

    And from what I understand, his employer fired him after they investigated the incident.

  • JGo555

    It’d be the slapping game all up in that bitch for me.

    Slap my kid, get a slap back.

  • GGMon

    I hate crying babies too, would i have done what he did and slap the kid? No, because as it was pointed out: Hitting a crying baby isn’t going to make him stop crying!! If someone slapped my kid, all hell would have definitely broke loose.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Seriously, they were on the descent and the kid started the screaming then? Dude, the plane is landing. You’re almost free! Hold your ignorance in for like 15 more minutes! How did this dickweed survive in a corporate system where you have to shut up and kiss ass to get anywhere?

  • CT

    I drink on the plane because I have kids with me.

    “Fancy words for it’s a fucking lie.” Crying – had me crying.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Firstly this guy’s actions were totally inappropriate if they were as described. At the time, I understand, the plane was being prepared to land so no food… my thoughts were, having sat next to the products of other people’s groins for hours on a plane or restaurant, would have been to ask for another seat early in the flight or simply tell the mother the child is her responsibility and she needs to take care of the issue. Let the mother do the verbal and physical assault… so much easier to sign a complaint than to be booked and sued.

  • If I were this child’s mother I’d have probably kicked his ass, so kudos to the mom for superior restraint.

  • Buffettgirl

    Why do I feel compelled to smack that look off of his face?

  • tkaz

    He had to be pretty drunk right? Not only to throw the N word around…at a BABY, but in a tight space near lots of ears. People don’t let derogatory name calling & baby slapping go. He knew that, right?

  • 18th40

    Probably just walked around with a dildo in his mouth.

  • scud420

    well, I hate the fact that racists ruin the reputation of my state (Idaho)… but I guess it’s kind of nice that almost nobody wants to move here…. but then it turns out that racists and teatards are most of the people who still want to move here… damnit.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    As a corporate flier, and someone that knows trends in the flight industry; this shit-for-brains moron had to know that a lot of airlines offer “child free” flights. Add that to the fact that he’s a “bad flier,” and had previously been convicted of assault on an airliner; he should have already been on a “no-fly” list.
    While I don’t condone anything this horse’s ass did concerning this toddler, I totally understand his dislike of having kids on airplanes.
    NOTHING is more irritating than being forced to listen to some irresponsible breeder’s squalling child directly behind you in an enclosed space. Babies & toddlers should never be allowed to fly in commercial airliners because they don’t know how to equalize the pressure/depressurization in their ears & you can’t have them chew gum to rectify this. It’s child abuse pure & simple.

    No matter what, he’s a still a violent racist dickhead that needs to sit his old ass in a federal prison for a bit.

  • techsupp0rt

    I’m from Eastern Oregon. Some of your Aryan riffraff came over a few years ago and tried to buy some land to start some sort of based of operations. They… were not warmly received.

  • techsupp0rt

    He’s lucky the mom was more in control. I would have come across that seat, broke his nose and gouged his eyes out. No tolerance for threatening my offspring!

  • Athena

    Who the fuck down-voted this and have they ever been to Idaho?!? Last time I was there, I encountered two young, white, ball cap wearin’, Natty tall boy drinkin’ bumpkins burning RVs on a dirt back road. And it wasn’t funny! I’d been making Deliverance jokes for the last half hour! I could only imagine those RVs belonged to fellow travelers who were unfortunate enough to ask these fellows for directions or something.

  • scud420

    lol not MY riffraff… yeah, people in my town have sent counter protestors up to the Aryan rallies they have up in Coeur d’alene as well. Indeed, it can get pretty heated.

  • scud420

    Friday night I was just trying to convince a friend of mine who’s black, to go on a bike ride around the lakes up by Hayden this summer… hundreds of miles of old railroad tracks turned into bike paths, go through the sides of mountains, all around the edge of the lake… very cool. My friend was all hesitant because of the reputation that area has. I assured him that it’s not that way up there anymore, and that it’s overblown by the media… Now I’m reminded that things may not have changed up there as much as I would like to believe, and why he why he would have been hesitant to even bother visiting such a beautiful place.

  • “and had previously been
    convicted of assault on an airliner; he should have already been on a
    “no-fly” list.”

    Where did it say he’d been convicted of assault on an airliner? Convicted of assault, yes. On an airliner, no.

  • techsupp0rt

    It was pretty funny, actually. It is such a small town they went to, that pretty much EVERYONE shut them out. They couldn’t buy a damn sandwich in that town.

  • Sam

    They may not be able to chew gum, but chewy toffees or even a drink work just as well. We flew once when our first was 5 months old and still breastfeeding – easy peasy, just stuck a boob in his mouth and bob’syeruncle.

  • G.I.R.L.

    You mean to tell me that people just as racist today?? Oh my, why is it that alcohol never influences me to become negative (or influences me negatively?)?

  • G.I.R.L.

    What would he had said if it were a white baby? “Shut that ghost up!”? I don’t understand some people.

  • techsupp0rt

    I don’t know why, but for some reason the thought of walking up to some random white folks and talking smack about their ‘ghost baby’ just cracks my shit right up.

  • Sudonim

    I’d rather sit near a crying baby over a toddler to teenager. At least babies cry for a reason, they are easy to console. All you really have to do is pop a bottle or soother in their mouth/ pull on an earlobe and they calm right down. It’s not the babies who annoy’s the parents who don’t even try to calm them that leave me twitching. Older kids..well they get antsy and it’s a lot harder to keep them quiet and sitting still. They wiggle like worms all over the place constantly kicking the back of your seat or talk until your head feels like exploding. I’ve sat through multiple international flights were my babies acted better then some of the older kids did. I always fly with my mp3 player. Not only does it block out crying kids but it keeps the nosy person next to you from actually talking to you.

  • ShelbySP

    Man, I dislike kids more than almost anyone, and even I understand when you’re two and your ears start popping for no reason, that shit is painful and TERRIFYING. What an asshole. Sidenote: Is it even possible for someone named “Joe Rickey” to articulate a sentence without the N-word?

  • lol. I think its pretty messed up when people want to have an attitude when babies cry on a plane. I know from experience that it is far more stressful for the parent worried about quieting their child because they do not want to irritate other passengers than it is to actually be the other passenger. I liked the “I drink on a plane because I have kids with me” part though 🙂

  • creamofflicka

    HAHA! Joe Rickey has fucked himself just for being a redneck. However, like most folks who have read this, had that been my kid,.. I’d have have beat that fuck half to death right on that plane,

  • I agree, when someone elses kid cries, all I can think is “*relieved sigh*, not my problem” lol

  • Tundratot

    Yeah, soon as I saw this ass was from Idaho, I didn’t have any trouble believing he made that comment. Idaho has “endured” some Californification, but the old crowd is still there and fighting back. All I can say is, I’m not moving there. Nuh-uh.

  • Tundratot

    Yup, my kids were both into nursing while flying. Quiets them right down.
