Darrelle Revis turns himself in to Pittsburgh authorities

Posted February 19, 2017

He is facing five charges comprising two counts of aggravated assault, one of conspiracy, one of robbery and one count of terroristic threats in relation to a street altercation over the weekend in south Pittsburgh.

"There are two sides to the quarter", Revis' attorney, Blaine Jones, said Thursday.

Revis' next court date will be Thursday.

Never mind that Revis, who attended Pitt and grew up in Aliquippa, Pa., about 30 miles outside of Pittsburgh, was back in old stomping grounds as he is prone to do during offseasons.

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. A male came to assist Revis.

According to the complaint, the incident started when Cousins asked Revis to confirm he was the National Football League player. Revis went by a location in the South Side [a neighborhood in Pittsburgh] that he is in the process of developing.

Watt said he didn't know whether Revis or the man who helped him knocked out Cousins and Jarvis, telling police, "I don't know". Two men told police that they had a verbal altercation with Revis, who then punched them.

A witness, Nathan Watt, told police that Revis approached Watt after Cousins and Jarvis were knocked out. "It happened so fast". Before this alleged incident, there was speculation that the Jets might cut Revis in a move to save salary cap space. "I think that he has a very promising case", Jones said according to Goldstein. Burke said that Cousins had a "contusion about his left eyebrow the size of a half a golf ball with a one- inch laceration on it" and Jarvis had a contusion on his right cheek.

The unidentified black male arrived, the report stated, Cousins got punched, regained consciousness and spoke to police. For all of the business instincts that Revis has shown throughout his career while strategically cashing in on the National Football League market - groomed by his financially-savvy uncle, former Pro Bowl D-tackle Sean Gilbert - a bodyguard also makes good business sense. Mr. Revis was physically assaulted while at that location by a group of at least five people.

That could be the tricky part, as the Jets have until March 10 - when Revis is owed a $2 million roster bonus - to decide if they want to restructure his contract, release him, or stand pat.

"At some point, Revis snatched the cellphone away and attempted to delete the video", the police statement said, according to an ESPN report.
