“The Calgary Stampeders Football Club is aware of the reports regarding Brendan Langley,” the Stampeders said in the statement. “The team is currently reviewing the matter to learn full details and will have no further comment until the investigation is complete.”
CNN contacted Langley and the CFL with no response.
Earlier Monday, CNN spoke with the Port Authority of Newark and United Airlines about a filmed confrontation between a United Airlines employee and another man.
The video reviewed by CNN begins after the confrontation began and it is unclear what sparked the fight. It shows the two blows exchanged.
The Port Authority told CNN a man named Brendan Langley is charged with common assault after getting into a fight with a United employee. When asked if the Brendan Langley charged in the incident was the current CFL player, the Port Authority declined to comment.
According to a Newark Airport Port Authority spokesperson, Langley was involved in a fight with the employee on May 19 at around 11:03 a.m.
Langley was charged with common assault and released on his own recognizance, the Port Authority spokesman said. United did not identify the former employee, and the Port Authority did not say he faced charges.
“United Airlines does not tolerate any form of violence at our airports or on board our aircraft and we are working with local authorities in their investigation of this matter,” the airline said in a statement to CNN. “United Ground Express has informed us that the employee has been terminated.”
