The United Airlines employee who was videotaped trying to squabble with ex-NFL player Brendan Langley at Newark last Thursday has been terminated, but the employee continues to remain unidentified and has not been charged in relation to the matter.
Brendan Langley, 27, was arrested on Thursday, May 19 at 11:03 a.m. after exchanging blows with an unidentified United Airlines employee.
Videos depict the duo throwing blows, and all available footage depicts the airline employee throwing the initial blow.
Langley, who formerly played for the Denver Broncos in the NFL and most lately for the Calgary Stampeders in Canada, has been the only individual arrested.
It is unknown why the airline employee was not charged. Instead, he was taken to a hospital for treatment of an eye injury, while Langley was arrested on Thursday for a single count of simple assault.
It is suspected that the fight started when Langley used a wheelchair rather than a $5 luggage cart to transport his belongings.
United Airlines has refused to identify the passenger or explain what transpired, but a spokesman confirmed to DailyMail.com that the employee has been terminated.
