A 60-year-old Idaho aerospace executive has been charged after allegedly slapping a crying infant as their Delta Air Lines flight from Minneapolis was landing in Atlanta.
Joe Rickey Hundley, of Hayden, was charged with misdemeanor simple assault for the Feb. 8 incident aboard Flight 721, the FBI said.

Hundley is president of Unitech Composites and Structures, a civilian and military contractor in Hayden, near Coeur d'Alene in northern Idaho, The Spokesman-Review reported Friday.

"I can only say it's an absolute falsehood," he told the paper, referring other questions to his attorney.

The Smoking Gun broke the story earlier in the day.

Jessica Bennett, of Minneapolis, told authorities her 2-year-old son, Jonah, began crying because of the altitude change as the plane was descending last Friday night, according to an FBI agent's affidavit. She said Hundley, who was sitting next to them in the back of the plane, slapped the boy with an open hand, causing a scratch under his right eye.
