Man, there’s just something about airports that bring out the worst in people.
In fact, I’m convinced the customer service line might be equivalent to Limbo, the first Circle of Hell.
Needless to say, I couldn’t imagine working at an airport, and having to deal with disgruntled passengers 24/7.
I can also sympathize with the passengers, because dealing with flights can be ass at times.
However, we those tensions can sometimes lead to a good ol’ fashion 55-gallon drum of whoop ass, and that’s what recently transpired at the Newark Airport in Newark, New Jersey last week…
And it involved former Denver Broncos cornerback Brendan Langley, and a United Airlines worker.
According to Daily Mail, the 27-year-old former pro football player has been accused of using a wheelchair to transport his luggage, instead of paying for a $5 luggage cart.
Now there’s no footage or information on how the event unfolded, but footage shows the airline worker and Langley trade punches, with the airline worker eating a couple hard rights.
But when he comes back for more, Langley retaliates by knocking the worker off his ass with a few swift punches.
Just an absolute SCENE.
He was booked on a single count of simple assault last Thursday, and the United Airlines worker was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries. He was not arrested.
United Airlines shared in a statement:
“United Airlines does not tolerate violence of any kind at our airports or on board our planes and we are working with local authorities to further investigate this matter.”
Langley, a Marietta, Georgia native, played college football at Lamar, and played one season at cornerback for the Denver Broncos.
He also played in the CFL for the Calgary Stampeders as a wide receiver last season.
