New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was back home in Pittsburgh to have a peaceful time visiting family and friends. That all turned for the worse for him when he was charged Thursday with aggravated assault, robbery, conspiracy and making terroristic threats after an altercation he had over the weekend. Most of the charges against him are felonies. Pittsburgh police say a 22-year-old man approached Revis at 2:43 a.m. Sunday morning and began recording a video of him with there cellphone. Revis apparently not happy he was being recorded attempted to grab the cellphone and delete the video. A 21-year-old man then approached to assist the man that was recording the video in an attempt to get the cellphone back. An argument then followed and the two men allegedly where punched by Revis and another man which left the pair unconscious until woken up by police. Apparently after police reviewed cell phone video of the incident they where able to identify Revis as being involved in the incident. It is not immediately known if the video shows Revis hitting the men.
Revis side of the story is apparently that he was physically assaulted by at least 5 people. He then feared for his safety and retreated from the aggressors. It sounds like police believe the cell phone video could potentially prove who’s side of the story is the truth. Things could get even worse for Revis this offseason as he is expected to be cut from the Jets before they are on the hook to pay him his $15.3 million salary for the 2017 season, but that might end up being the least of his problems.
