The altercation seemingly occurred at the check-in desk for United Airlines, with the customer appearing to be disgruntled. The United Airlines employee could be seen taking punches from the customer and then slapping him in the side of the head.

This is when the customer retaliated with even more punches which sent the employee down behind the check-in desk. When the employee stood up, his face was bloody.

The Daily Mail reports that the customer in the video is ex-NFL player Brendan Langley. The report says that Langley was arrested for one count of simple assault following the incident. Apparently, the argument between Langley and the employee began when Langley used a wheelchair to transport his luggage instead of a paid-for luggage cart.

While the short video certainly cannot paint the entire picture of what happened in this incident, reactions from social media show that many are trying to find who is at fault.

While social media has not come to a conclusion on what exactly transpired here, maybe United Airlines investigation into the incident will provide more clarity on why the altercations escalated to the level that it did. We will have to wait and see to find out.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
