Big trouble! Darrelle Revis, 31, is facing charges of robbery, aggravated assault, terroristic threats and conspiracy after allegedly being involved in a street fight in Pittsburgh on Feb. 13. He was reportedly approached in the early morning hours by a 22-year-old man who came up to him asking if it was really the New York Jets’ star cornerback. When he affirmed his identity, the guy started filming him with his phone and that’s when he claims Darrelle lost it.
A 21-year-old man came along to help after Darrelle allegedly tried to grab the phone from the fan’s hand. They claim that a friend joined the athlete and that the last memory the men have is of being punched, waking up on the street after laying unconscious for 10 terrifying minutes.
The NFL star is telling a different tale, as his lawyer told CBS Pittsburgh that, “Mr. Revis came home to Pittsburgh this past weekend to visit family and friends. During that time Mr. Revis went by a location in the Southside that he is in the process of developing. Mr. Revis was physically assaulted while at that location by a group of at least 5 people. Mr. Revis feared for his safety and retreated from the aggressors. Mr. Revis was not arrested after this incident. Mr. Revis sought medical attention as a result of the aforementioned attack.”
