“Brendan Langley was minding his own business walking through the airport with his bags when he was approached by a United Airlines employee who said he was ‘running the airport,'” Jackson said.

“When Brendan tried to ignore him, the assailant followed him and harassed Brendan, calling him ‘d**k’ and ‘p***y’ and challenging him to a fight.”

Jackson also says that Langley asked for help and that the CCTV footage will back up his client on this.

“Airport security camera footage establishes beyond doubt that Brendan was in reasonable fear of physical harm and reasonably and lawfully defended himself,” Jackson added. “We do not expect charges to be brought against Brendan.”

Langley was arrested and suspended by his current employers, the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders. The employee was immediately terminated by United.

It is unclear why the airline worker was not hired. Instead, he was taken to the hospital for treatment for an eye injury, while Langley was booked on a single charge of simple assault on Thursday.

The fight is believed to have started when Langley used a wheelchair to transport her luggage, instead of a $5 paid luggage cart.

United Airlines has declined to name the passenger or explain exactly what happened, but a spokesperson told DailyMail.com that the worker has now been fired.

The Port Authority did not comment on whether or not charges were expected against the United worker.
