Brendan was an Ex- NFL star who currently competes in the Canadian Football League (CFL) with the Calgary Stampeders. He has just he signed a four-year contract worth $3.17 million. But this time, Brendan made news all over the internet for a wrong reason as a video of his outburst with an airline worker was found online.
Former NFL player Brendan Langley was recently involved in a physical altercation with a United Airlines employee at Newark Airport, with the encounter recorded by an onlooker.
The video shows Langley and a gate agent getting into an altercation, which starts with slapping and ends with punches being thrown. Langley eventually knocks the employee to the ground with a punch to the head, though the employee gets up and walks toward Langley immediately afterward with a bloody face.
Langley was eventually arrested and charged with simple assault, according to TMZ, while the employee was fired.
Langley was arrested on a simple assault charge. The fight reportedly started when the employee asked Langley to give up a wheelchair that Langley had been using to push his luggage.
“The Calgary Stampeders football club is aware of the reports concerning Brendan Langley,” the Stampeders said in a statement. “The team is currently looking into the matter in order to learn the full details and will have no further comment until the investigation is complete.”
United fired the employee and released a statement saying, “United Airlines does not tolerate violence of any kind at our airports or on board our planes and we are working with local authorities in their investigation of this matter. United Ground Express informed us that the employee has been terminated.”
The Broncos selected Langley in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft. At first he played cornerback, but after two years the Broncos moved him to wide receiver in the 2019 offseason. He did not make the roster that year and hasn’t been in the NFL since, other than a very brief stint on the Seahawks’ practice squad. The Stampeders signed him in February.
