Jets cornerback Revis turns himself into Pittsburgh police
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has turned himself into police.
Revis is facing multiple charges following an altercation that left a pair of Pittsburgh men unconscious last weekend.
On Thursday, the 31-year-old was charged with two counts of felony aggravated assault, single counts each of robbery and conspiracy, both felonies, and making terroristic threats, a misdemeanor.
Revis did not speak with media who had assembled on Friday in front of the Pittsburgh Municipal Courts building.
The alleged incident occurred at 02:43 (local time) Sunday when 22-year-old Dallas Cousins recognized Revis, a Pittsburgh native who played collegiately at Pitt.
The man pulled out a cell phone to film his interaction with Revis.
Seven-time Pro Bowler Revis did not want to be bothered and the incident escalated as Cousins' room-mate, 21-year-old Zacheriah Jarvis, got involved.
That is when police say Revis "snatched the cell phone away and attempted to delete the video. Another 21-year-old male from Ross Township attempted to help the 22-year-old retrieve the cell phone. Revis then tossed the phone onto the roadway. A verbal argument followed. A male came to assist Revis. Both the 22-year-old and the 21-year-old state they were punched then remember waking up to talk to police."
The two men were unconscious for approximately 10 minutes. Revis left the scene and did not call 911.
Revis' lawyer, Blaine Jones, said his client "was not the aggressor that night. He was 1,000 percent the victim."
Because of a personal conduct clause in his contract, the Jets would have the option to void the five-year, $70million deal Revis signed in 2015 if the player is deemed culpable.
