Darrelle Revis turns himself in to Pittsburgh authorities

NFL International Series- New York Jets at Miami Dolphins

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is in legal trouble after a confrontation last Sunday on the streets of Pittsburgh.

Revis was charged with four first-degree felonies and one misdemeanor.

Revis faces four felony charges - including aggravated assault and robbery - and one misdemeanor charge stemming from an incident in Pittsburgh early last Sunday morning.

Mr. Revis turned himself in about 7:15 p.m.at City Court in Downtown.

Revis is a former Tampa Bay cornerback who now plays for the New York Jets.

According to the police statement, "At some point, Revis snatched the cellphone away and attempted to delete the video".

An argument ensued, ending with another man helping Revis, according to the police statement. The video shows Revis walking away from the group, but they followed him. Two men say they were punched and knocked out. Later, another 21-year-old male came to "help the 22-year-old retrieve the cellphone" before Revis threw the phone onto the roadway.

The multi-time All-Pro and Pro Bowl pick was spotted by a police officer doing his rounds in the South Side at around 2:30am on Monday, talking to two men. "The video then shows Revis standing in front of the White Eagle Bar, saying, 'Why are you following me?' several times before the video stops".

Three calls were placed to 911, including one from Cousins.

In a statement, Jones said Revis was "assaulted by a group of five people" and fled the scene because he "feared for his safety and eventually went to get medical treatment". He said Revis told him, "I got more guys coming". Suffice it to say, Revis's days as an elite cornerback are over.

The complaint also said Revis "stepped within a foot of his face with an aggressive demeanor on his face, fists clenched, and stated, 'Do you want to be next?'"

The Jets said they were aware of the incident but had no other immediate comment.

First, because of complicated salary cap reasons, the Jets can't cut Revis until March 9, when the new league year begins - cutting him before then would put them over the cap for the 2016 season, according to overthecap.com.
