‘United Airlines does not tolerate violence of any kind at our airports,’ the airline says
On Monday, a viral video captured a vicious brawl between the employee and an irate customer, who later turned out to be former Denver Broncos cornerback Brendan Langley, at an airport in New Jersey. The video did not show who started the fight, but United later said the worker had lost his job at United Ground Express, a subsidiary of United.
“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,” the airline said in a statement. “United Ground Express informed us that the employee has been terminated.”
Mr Langley, meanwhile, was arrested and then released on his own recognizance, according to the Port Authority. He has been charged with simple assault.
