The pair appear to trade slaps, before Langley asks "You saw that s**t?" to someone watching.
Langley then delivers a right hand that sends the employee sprawling.
The employee works his way back to his feet and again squares up to Langley.
"You want some more?" Langley can be heard yelling.
A spectator could be heard yelling "stop" throughout the ordeal.
However, as the pair trade words another man appears to intervene and stop the altercation.
