One of the combatants in the wild brawl at Newark Airport in New Jersey was a former NFL and current CFL player.
Brendan Langley, a third-round pick by the Denver Broncos in 2017 and current Calgary Stampeder, has been arrested and charged with simple assault.
The United Airlines worker he fought in the melee is no longer employed by the airline as a result.
