Very Good advice. Never tolerate this kind of behavior.You should have used him to show other crew members as an example how not to relate to you. (let them know what you expect from them right when they are hired and if they have anything to discuss with you it is to be done in private at the close of the day. Then they will know what is coming when you have to act on this situation and won't be taken back by your action's).
No employee is worth keeping when they challenge your authority, you work to hard for this.
