Calgary Stampeders football player Brendan Langley’s case dismissed for airport assault


Brendan Langley was indefinitely suspended by the Stampeders on May 26, 2022, following an incident at Newark Liberty International Airport, and now the case against Langley has been dismissed.

The former Broncos draft pick can get back to playing football after his assault case was dismissed by a judge on Wednesday.


According to TMZ Sports, Langley’s attorney was happy with the decision.

Langley’s attorney, Halim Dhanidina, tells us the reasoning is because officials determined Langley “used force that was reasonably necessary” during the now-famous May altercation at Newark Liberty International Airport.

“We are grateful for the Court’s decision which puts an end to this ordeal that began nearly two months ago when Mr. Langley was assaulted then wrongfully arrested and charged for exercising his rights under the law,” said Dhanidina, who works for Werksman Jackson & Quinn LLP.

Langley was initially arrested and charged with simple assault after he knocked out a United Airlines employee.

The United employee was fired, so hopefully Langley can get back to football!
