United Airlines worker, passenger trading blows at Newark

Shocking video captured the moment a passenger and a United Airlines employee squared off at Newark Airport — where the worker appeared to hit the man, who then knocked him to the floor.

The footage shows the airline employee pushing the passenger, who then unleashes a flurry of blows that send the worker reeling.

The Lamar University star was drafted in the third round of the 2017 draft and made 16 appearances in the NFL before playing in Canada this year.

The dazed uniformed staffer then puts up his dukes and proceeds to slap the passenger across the face.

“You saw that s—?” the passenger shouts at a bystander before delivering a punch that decks the worker.

The bloodied United worker stumbles back onto his feet and confronts the man again.

“You want some more? He wants some more!” the passenger yells at him.

Meanwhile, yells of “Stop!” can be heard in the background amid the brawl.

TMZ identified the passenger as singer-songwriter Larren Wong, who shared the video on his Twitter account.

“Security had me bent glad someone caught this on movie,” Wong wrote.

“While y’all here check out my latest EP ‘It’ll Make Sense Soon’ before I beat y’all ass!!” he added in another tweet.

Another video of the incident shared online appeared to show the passenger land the first blow.

A United rep told The Post in an email that the company “does not tolerate violence of any kind at our airports or on board our planes and we are working with local authorities to further investigate this matter.”

A source said the passenger, who had been using a wheelchair incorrectly to transport his luggage, was removed by police.

The passenger was arrested, according to TMZ.

The Port Authority police and Wong did not immediately respond to messages from The Post about the incident.
