Over the weekend, we told you about the shocking incident that occurred aboard an airplane when a two-year-old boy was slapped by a stranger

The suspect, 60-year-old Joe Rickey Hundley, allegedly

used a racial slur as well, and Jessica Bennett said her son Jonah was bleeding after the attack. Hundley, a native of Idaho, is facing a federal assault charge and has now been fired from his job as president of Unitech Composites and Structures.

The incident took place Feb. 8 on a flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta. Bennett said Hundley was drinking during the flight and becoming increasingly belligerent. She said she stood with Jonah for most of the flight as a result, but had to sit down when the plane was landing.

When Jonah started crying, Bennett says Hundley whispered a racial slur in her ear twice and struck her son.
