Jets' Darrelle Revis turns himself into police after robbery, assault charges

Share

Revis did not speak to waiting reporters when arriving at the Pittsburgh Municipal Courts building on Friday evening.

The four-time All-Pro turned himself in to police to face charges stemming from a night which started at a bar called The Library and ended with his booking for a street brawl, according to a new report. Witnesses state the two were unconscious for about 10 minutes.

As more details emerge regarding the arrest of Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, it's becoming more clear that it will be hard to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he committed the most serious of the charges now pending against him: Aggravated assault. Revis also has been charged with a misdemeanor count of terroristic threats. Another 21-year-old man from Ross Township tried to help the other man, but Revis tossed the phone into the road, the statement says. He added that the Jets cornerback "feared for his safety" and sought medical attention, but didn't offer details about the severity of Revis' injuries.

Donald Trump brands mainstream media 'enemy of the American people'
But attacking the entire media as "fake", and labeling it the "enemy of the American people", is a unsafe precedent to set. Leave it to Trump to inspire new career goals for hundreds of budding and veteran journalists.

An argument occurred afterwards, and an unidentified man came over to assist Revis.

Video footage of the incident captured on Cousins' phone showed the 5-foot-11, 198-pound Revis standing outside the White Eagle bar. Police say the 22-year-old man and the 21-year-old man claimed they were punched and knocked out. Mr. Revis was physically assaulted while at that location by a group of at least five people. Mr. Revis was not arrested after this incident.

NYT, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN Are 'ENEMY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE'
This comes a day after a lengthy combative press conference held by the president at the White House. President Donald Trump is continuing his attacks on the news media.

A spokesperson with the New York Jets told CNN on Thursday that the organization is aware of the incident, has spoken to Revis and would have no further comment at this time. If the Jets were already planning on cutting him, they likely aren't going to wait for the legal process to take its course just for an outside chance at recouping $6 million.

Cousins said Revis started "walking away from him headed eastbound on Carson Street while he was recording him" and "wanted to get what Revis was wearing and his actions on video", the complaint said.
