NFL Star Darrelle Revis Facing Robbery, Terroristic Threats, Conspiracy & Aggravated Assault Charges
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is in hot water and facing multiple charges stemming from a street fight with two Pittsburgh men last weekend.
Here’s the scoop via the NY Daily News:
In a statement released Thursday, police say Revis, 31, was walking along the street at around 2:43 a.m. when he was approached by a 22-year-old male. Police say the man asked Revis if he was in fact the NFL star and Revis said he was.
According to police, the man then began to film Revis on his phone and followed him until Revis eventually grabbed the phone from the man in an attempt to delete the video.
At some point, police say the man’s friend came to help him retrieve his phone from Revis, but Revis threw the phone into the street and a verbal argument ensued. Police say a man then came to assist Revis and the two men say they were punched. The next thing the two men remember, they told police, was waking up to talk to the police.
Witnesses told police the two men were unconscious for 10 minutes.
The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police says they have reviewed the cellphone video and confirmed the man in question was Revis.
Police say charges are pending against Revis, and will include robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault.
Darrelle Revis claims the men were drunk and he was the one under attack.
A spokesperson for the Jets released the following said, “We are aware of the incident and have spoken to Darrelle.”
