A former NFL player has been arrested on an assault charge after he allegedly brawled with a United Airlines worker at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, according to reports.
The unidentified United employee appeared to hit Langley, who then knocked him to the floor by unleashing a flurry of blows.
According to footage that was shared online, the worker threw the first punch, but the videos immediately start mid-fight and fail to show what actually led to the conflict.
Authorities told the entertainment news network only Langley was arrested, but not the employee, despite Langley claiming he didn't start the brawl and hadn't thrown the first punch. The worker was taken to a hospital for treatment.
In the video, the uniformed staffer is seen in a verbal conflict with Langley shortly before the worker slaps him across the face once.
"You saw that [explicit]?" Langley is then heard shouting at a bystander before pummeling the worker to the ground, delivering a blow to his head that causes the employee to stumble backward behind a check-in desk onto the conveyor belt.
After the worker staggered back up to his feet, he appears bloodied to his head. He then confronts the man again, but the pair didn't get physical again from then onward.
"You want some more? He wants some more!" Langley is heard yelling repeatedly before another employee joins the conflict to calm them down. The passenger was then removed from the airport by police, which is not seen in the clip.
A United Airlines spokesman said in a statement that the air carrier "does not tolerate violence of any kind at our airports or on board our planes."
"We are working with local authorities to further investigate this matter," the spokesman said, without stating whether the United employee would face disciplinary actions for his role in the brawl.
