  • Joe Hundley, 60, surrendered to FBI in north Idaho on Feb. 19.

A Coeur d'Alene man who made national headlines after being accused of slapping a 2-year-old boy and calling him a racial slur aboard a Delta Airlines flight appeared in a north Idaho federal courtroom Feb. 19.

Joe Hundley, 60, was ordered not to drink alcohol, post a $10,000 bond, not to possess firearms, and he must surrender his passport and can't travel outside of Idaho, eastern Washington or Georgia, where the federal case is expected to go to trial.

Hundley surrendered to FBI agents on Tuesday before his court date with U.S. Magistrate Judge Mikel Williams.

Hundley was fired from his position as president of Unitech Composites and Structures in Hayden after the incident, which made headlines across the nation.

Hundley is accused of slapping the toddler Feb. 8 on a Delta flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta, allegedly telling the child's mother to "shut that [racial slur] baby up."

Hundley was previously convicted of a March 2012 DUI in Post Falls. He was fined $800 and lost his Idaho driver's license for 90 days.
