In the video, Langley can be heard shouting, “He works at the airport and he assaulted me!” When the employee gets back up and re-engages Langley, the football player asks him, “You want some more?”

Langley spent his college career at Lamar, and eventually was drafted in the third round by the Broncos in 2017. He appeared in 16 games with Denver over two seasons from 2017 and ’18, mostly playing special teams, and was waived ahead of the ’19 season. He’s currently a member of the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League.
