An aerospace executive finds himself out of a job Monday morning after being charged with assaulting a toddler aboard an airliner.

A mother says Joe Hundley, 60, slapped her son during a Delta flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta last week. Jessica Bennett also claims Hundley appeared drunk and insulted her son with a racial slur. Her 19-month-old son Jonah suffered cuts and bruises.

Hundley had served as president of an aircraft parts company in Idaho.
