A video of a shocking fight at an airport went viral over the weekend. TMZ and The Sun are reporting one of the people involved is former Denver Broncos player Brendan Langley.

Langley was arrested and charged with simple assault despite his claim of self-defense, according to media reports. Langley has been very active on social media about the brouhaha.

Langley, a third round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft from Lamar University, is currently a member of the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders.

TMZ says the fight occurred at Newark Liberty International Airport between an airline passenger, Langley, and United Airlines employee. Langley threw a punch and knocked the worked into something which bloodied him. The employee slapped Langley before he threw the punch, at least in the video.

The employee while dazed jumped back up and appeared to want to keep fighting but then the video ends.
