New York Jets star Darrelle Revis charged in Pittsburgh incident

Darrelle Revis clenched his fists and asked a man, "Do you want to be next?" after two of his friends were knocked unconscious in a South Side street fight Sunday, according to a police report obtained by PennLive.

Charges pending against Revis include robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault.

Revis' lawyer told CBSPittsburgh.com that the cornerback was in town visiting family and friends when he was assaulted by a group of five people and needed medical treatment. He also said "at no point in time was Darrelle the aggressor", and noted he was "retreating" from the situation.

Revis' attorney, Blaine Jones, told WTAE that Revis was the one assaulted.

Shortly after 2 a.m., the accusers, ages 21 and 22, were walking on a South Side Pittsburgh street when they spotted Revis and approached him, police said.

The men apparently approached Revis and asked if he really was the star cornerback before they began to record a cellphone video of him.

According to that report, two men were filming Revis who wasn't feeling it and argument ensued and the two men were reportedly attacked.

Police also say two others claimed that they were punched and knocked out during that incident itself by Revis and his helper.

A statement from Revis' lawyer to CBS Pittsburgh directly contradicted this report. Revis allegedly snatched a cell phone from one man and threw it into the street, before knocking him and another man unconscious just before 3:00 am on Sunday.

The Jets cornerback was drinking for several hours at the scholarly-named watering hole before he punched out two men last weekend, a witness told WPXI-TV.

"The bottom line is, Darrelle Revis was the victim in all of this", Jones said.

A third male present, Nathan Watt, said after Cousins and Jarvis were punched, Revis said "I've got more guys coming". All he heard was his name being said over and over again...he became fearful.

Darrelle's attorney spoke with reporters about the incident.

One of the alleged victims sustained broken bones around his left eye, according to the police complaint. There is some serious "he said, he said" stuff going on here, and we have yet to see a police report emerge.

Revis, 31, is a native of nearby Aliquippa who played college ball at Pitt.
