Jets’ Darrelle Revis Charged With 4 Felonies For Violent Fight
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has been charged with four felonies for a violent altercation over the weekend outside a Pittsburgh bar.
The incident took place at around 2:45 am on Sunday (Feb. 12) in Pittsburgh's South Side, where Revis punched two men (ages 22 and 21) during a heated verbal exchange.
Police say the 22-year-old man spotted Revis on the street, confronted him, began recording video on his cellphone and continued to follow the NFL star. Eventually, Revis became enraged, snatched the cellphone and attempted to delete the video before tossing it on the street. From there, an argument ensued... and fists started flying.
Police say the two men were rendered unconscious for around 10 minutes. Later, they went to the hospital, where one was diagnosed with an orbital floor fracture.
A warrant has been issued for Revis for two felony counts of aggravated assault, one felony count each of robbery and conspiracy, and a misdemeanor count of terroristic threats.
His attorney Blaine Jones says he'll likely surrender within the next 48 hours.
ESPN reports that the Jets have spoken to Revis regarding the incident, while the NFL said it would look into the matter.
