MINNEAPOLIS — A man charged with slapping a toddler on a Minneapolis-to-Atlanta flight appears to be out of a job.


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Saturday that AGC Aerospace and Defense had suspended 60-year-old Joe Rickey Hundley, of Hayden, Idaho, as president of its Unitech Composites and Structures.


On Sunday, AGC issued a statement saying that, while not referring to Hundley by name, calls reports of an executive’s behavior on personal travel “offensive and disturbing” and says he “is no longer employed with the company.” The statement does not say whether the executive quit or was fired.


Hundley was charged with assault last week after he was accused of slapping a 2-year-old boy and called him a racial slur during the Feb. 8 flight. His attorney has said he will plead not guilty.
