Darrelle Revis charged with four felonies

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has been charged with four felonies after an incident last weekend on Pittsburgh’s South Side.

Revis has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of robbery and one count of conspiracy, per multiple reports. He’s also been charged with making terroristic threats, a misdemeanor.

Pittsburgh Police released a statement Thursday evening saying charges were pending after police reviewed cellphone video showing Revis had some sort of altercation with a 21-year old man and a 22-year old man who were found unconscious around 2:40 a.m. last Sunday. The police statement said those men remember encountering Revis and having a verbal argument but woke up after being punched and weren’t sure who had punched them.

Revis’ attorney, Blaine Jones, told ESPN.com that he was trying to set up a time for Revis to turn himself in. Jones said that his client was not the aggressor and feared for his safety.

The Jets told local beat reporters they were aware of the incident and had spoken to Revis but would have no further comment. Revis, 31, played college football at Pitt and is from Western Pennsylvania.

A KDKA-TV report quoting a Revis attorney without naming him earlier Thursday said Revis had sought medical treatment after being attacked by five men. That differed from other reports and from a police statement earlier Thursday evening that said Revis threw a phone that belonged to one of the accusers into the street, and that officers estimate the men were unconscious for 10 minutes before being woken up by police.

  1. I’ll wait for more details before giving any opinion. Strange story to say the least though.

  2. All that money and soon you’ll be eating canned beans and corn bread from behind a prison cell.

    Forever a shadow in his hometown of Aliquippa as well, to the legend Ty Law.

    Just never could live up to his legacy. Too bad so sad.

    Enjoy prison, maybe they’ll let you play with Aaron on the prison football team.

  3. Am I the only one who thought the terroristic charge sounded likethe worse charge and its a misdemeanor.
    Did he punch a couple of Isis guys

  4. This already seems shady, I see 3 different versions of the stories and 2 of them don’t have Revis punching anyone. Sounds like the guys were following him around after he repeatedly asked them not too. We will see about this.

  5. I congratulate Revis. I think more fans should be knocked the hell out. These are real people.. keep running your gums like you’re watching a tv screen.. wake up to ask a cop where you are.

  6. Two weeks after the Patriots win another ring.

    If Bill don’t pay the guy, I assume it’s for the better at this point.

  7. miracles do occur.

    This article has been up for over 45 minutes and not one NE fan has commented!!

  8. Seems not to long ago he would hold out every year. Rex would go to his house and beg him to come to camp. They’d re do his contract every year and he was considered the best.

    Now, likely done and facing a suspension. Hope one night at a bar was worth it. Fool

  9. I just hope whoever recorded it was smart enough to hold their phone horizontally. Nothing worse than when some idiot records a fight with their phone vertical so you can see squat.

  10. You’re going to jail, Bart. Say goodbye to the wife and tater tots.

    And by that I mean he’s rich and famous, so nothing’s gonna happen.

  11. Wow… As crazy as this story is, it is pretty impressive that Revis allegedly punched two guys and knocked them out for ten minutes each! Either Revis has a champion punch, or both of these guys havd glass jaws. Hopefully we will find out!

    Darrelle could be the one NFL player to excel in a post-football MMA career! I can’t wait until this cell phone video is released!

  12. To bad for him he’s not a steeler. Then there would be an investigation into the cop that made the arrest.

  13. The guys getting close to football retirement and instead of enjoying all that money he made and having the best of everything for the rest of his life he will end up in a prison cell. Pathetic.

  14. This guy has been around, no kid. The Tuna is 100% right, nothing good happens on the street after midnight. Darrelle, I thought you got it, wrong.

  15. These guys are wealthy beyond their wildest dreams. Why don’t they just stay home in their mansions with their families? Truly, nothing good happens after midnight.

  16. Robbery? Are they charging him with stealing his paycheck last year?

    Game. Set and Match my friend! LMFAO

    I hope everyone waits for all the info before passing judgement but I doubt it.

    Why should anyone start now?

  18. Shoulda signed w/ 1 of the Clown’s favorite teams when he left the Patriots. This would have all gone away. Instead he had to drain every last penny from the Jets.

  19. For those who actually took the time to read the police report, he was actually responding to two stalkers. Now I don’t advocate punching them out and throwing their phones into the street but these are not two citizens who were minding their own business prior to the incident.

  20. Sounds like they were heckling him, and then they got ktfo for running their mouths. When will professional athletes learn not to hang out in bars full of angry broke-ass dudes looking for trouble??

  21. Let’s just wait until the facts are made public. Mr. Revis is entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise as are we all.

  22. Revis just had to go out to the bar!!!? You couldn’t have just stayed in? Your a millionaire but you still want to go out to some Pittsburgh bar???!!!

  23. This makes no sense at all. Is the robbery charge for throwing someone’s phone in the street?

    There is a lot missing here. Like motive. Multi millionaire super star in old neighborhood makes him a target.

    I love this, hope he gets 5 years.

    ————-

    You hope he gets 5 years in prison because you don’t like him as a player? Come on.

  25. “Revis had some sort of altercation with a 21-year old man and a 22-year old man who were found unconscious around 2:40 a.m. last Sunday.”

    Nothing good ever happens past midnight.

  26. At 31 years old, he might as well retire. No way the Jets keep him and no one else will touch him now even if he is proven innocent. If he is found guilty, even if all he gets is probation he will still end up sitting out all of next year with what the league will do to him.

  27. I love the whole “he was trying to set up a time for Revis to turn himself in…”
    1. Get in car.
    2. Drive to police station.
    3. Walk in.
    I’m pretty sure they’re open.

    (You and I wouldn’t have this option as a team of officers would he knocking at our doors to haul us in)

  28. I wouldn’t jump to conclusions based on a police report until more facts are verified. One key fact not discussed in the report is who reported the incident and did Revis leave the scene knowing that someone he, or his associate, hit were in need of medical care. Being unconscious for ten minutes is a long time.

  29. Wait a minute. Revis’ hands are soooo fast that he knockout 2 people and neither person saw who hit them?

    Are we talking about Revis or Muhammad Ali?

    Or maybe Revis said, “Hey, there’s the Goodrich blimp!” and they both looked.

    Haha. A fifth one for theft?
    ==========================

    He took a guys cell phone and destroyed it.

  31. This is the first bad incident that we have heard of in a long career and it’s terrible. “The Island” actually had the reputation of being a really good guy off the field who consciously avoided any trouble. Very surprised and deeply saddened to hear this.

  32. No chance he sits a day in jail. And I’m not even talking about high powered legal representation. All charges will be dropped after his story comes down. Book it!

    Canned beans & cornbread……?
    You Chowds are truly wacked!

  34. 1. doesn’t want to be filmed – starts altercation by taking kid’s cell phone.

    2. doesn’t delete cell phone video (used to implicate him) after knocking the kids out?

    3. LOL

    ————–

    Did you read the content? The cops decided to charge him with the felonies after seeing the video. Revis was unlikely to be the victim.

  36. It seems very odd that Revis is also being charged with robbery, conspiracy, and “terroristic threats”, no? These 2 guys were following and harrassing HIM.

    Who is filing all these charges? Revis’ mortal enemy?

    Maybe if they try hard enough, they can get him charged with the Kennedy assassination too.

  37. I am holding back judgement right now. I know for a fact that pro athletes are constantly dealing with punks who want to take home a story about “yeah remember that time when we kicked so-and-so’s butt?”
    That happens all the time

  38. From what I heard, the 2 guys followed Revis, asked if he was Revis, then started recording him. Revis asked them to stop, they didn’t. He grabbed the phone and chucked it, a fight ensued and the 2 guys were knocked out.

    If true, I commend Revis and the 2 guys should be charged with aggravated assault.

  39. Goodell will do nothing. WIth a 7 mil cap hit, Goodell will help old friends, the NY Jets, similarly to the Ravens, when he helped cover up Ray Rice’s domestic abuse case by lying TWICE because Baltimore cutting Rice incurred a 9.5 mil cap hit for them in 2014.

    Arrest, try and convict Goodell.

  40. Who says Reavis can’t hit anymore?! lol

    On the serious side. Always 2 sides to every story and the truth is somewhere in between.

  41. Of all area of Picksburgh why would he be in the Southside. It’s nasty full of drunk/drugged out 20 somethings……..Just like JPezzy idiocracy.

    Goto Lawrenceville, penn ave, Shadyside….if you have money just stay away from the nasty Southside.

  42. I’m hardly a Jets fan but I’m dumbfounded at the need by so many people here to trash this guy without a splinter of facts. It’s almost as if you assume that a man of color must be guilty of something.

    A Jets player, A Jets matter, except the first thought is the Patriots? Obsess much?

  45. whose idea was it to call Bostonians “Chowds”

    What an idiotic, un-apt name.

    Should we call all Baltimore people blue crabs?
    Oh, lets call all Philly fans Cheese steaks.
    Or lets call Bears fans Deep dishers

    Please. Get a clue

  46. I don’t know who’s at fault in this, but you wanna know a common theme in these kinds of stories? THEY’RE ALL OUT ON THE STREETS AT 2:00AM!! I’m not a prude, but if you want to go clubbing until bar time, the probability of trouble rises!

  47. I dont know enough that my words should be taken too too seriously. But on the initial reporting of facts it sounds like all sides did some wrong and just throwing the matter out on that basis might not be a bad way to go for a court. I suppose that would be too much to expect from the public or the NFL, but for the courts anyhow.

  48. Amazing to see all of the fools write, “Lock Him Up” when we’ve watched this guy for a decade now and never had any issues whatsoever with the law.

    5 dudes come at him and he introduces them to them to NFL conditioning… and most of you convict him already?

    The dummies are out in full force I see!

    Cops don’t charge you with 4 felonies without facts.

  50. Terroristic threat :

    “You can’t say bomb on an airplane”

    “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb-ba-da bomb!”

  51. One has to wonder what “fully guaranteed” in Revis’ contract means legally.

    According to SportTrac, Revis signed a 5 year, $70,121,060 contract with the Jets, including $39,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $14,024,212. In 2017, Revis will earn a base salary of $13,000,000, a roster bonus of $2,000,000 and a signing bonus of $1,000,000. Revis has a cap hit of $15,333,333 while his dead money value is $6,000,000.

    The $39M “fully guaranteed” (2015-16 salaries + $6MM of 2017 salary) has only $6M left to be paid. Even if he is cut now and the Jets get out from under the $6MM left of the fully guaranteed” amount that means he got $33MM for two sub par years. Woody Johnson at his best, stealing Revis back from the Patriots. The more these other owners try to screw with the Patriots the bigger hole they dig for their own teams.

    Good thing Woody is hiding out in London.

  52. “Wait a minute. Revis’ hands are soooo fast that he knockout 2 people and neither person saw who hit them?”

    Let’s speculate, which I hate to do, but this comment begs the question:

    If you see dollar signs, and are asked by the police who hit you, you might not want to say Revis because there might be a witness that knows it was the other guy. But, the other guy might be judgement proof (not enough assets to go after in a civil action) so you say I don’t know who hit me.

    It is also interesting that both guys were unconscious until the police arrived.

    These two guys are a civil litigator’s wet dream.

  53. whose idea was it to call Bostonians “Chowds”
    ===

    Not sure. But it fits pretty well.

    Although I like ‘chowdah heads’ better. (or chow duh!.. probably more fitting)

    And PS; When you and your band of goons stop acting like obnoxious morons, people will get off your back.

    We all get it. You are fans the best team in the League and perhaps the best ever. We don’t need to be told about every 30 seconds. The rest of us know very well the nighmare we’re involved in.

  54. No one is unconscious for 10 minutes. That part sounds ridiculous.

    Also, Revis has always been the very definition of careful throughout his career. I doubt he’d be swinging at these guys all by himself, if at all, unless attacked.

    Also, “terroristic threats”?

    C’mon.

  55. The guy that hit those two dudes was not Revis, but he was wearing a game-worn Tom Brady jersey from Feb 5th…

    Yes they do. And all the time too. Its the exact reason why there is a Grand Jury process. (Which I get it isnt perfect either, I’m just saying why it’s there.)

    The “terroristic threats” charge has nothing to do with “terrorism” as we understand the term. Under PA law, it merely means putting another in objective fear of immediate bodily harm. Fixed it.

    —————————

    If one is in the habit of following and harassing NFL players the threat of bodily harm is somewhat implied anyhow regardless of whether said so.

  59. Love the medical experts here…

    “No one is unconscious for 10 minutes. That part sounds ridiculous.”

    Does anybody know what a concussion is?

    Oh, and if a person is unconscious that along, he’s likely to not have a clear memory of what exactly happened before the concussion.

  60. Career gone, money soon to follow. Hope he’s not floating too many baby mommas out there.

  61. Goodell won’t use the video against Revis because it was filmed from the wrong location.

    Chris Carter wants to know who the fall guy is.

  62. Goodell’s fault right?
    Oh wait, it’s the Jets fault right?
    I’m waiting for the media to demand to know why Roger Goodell or Woody Johnson weren’t ensuring that players like Revis stay out of trouble.

    Revis returned to the ‘hood from whence he came. he failed to learn that in order to succeed in life, you must cut ties with your “homies” because they will bring you down.

    Revis is an idiot.

    Goodell and Johnson are innocent.

    Psst. The Pats rule hehe.

    By the way, obnoxious morons? Ever been to a Bears, Steelers, or ANY New York team game?

  64. there HAS to be more to this story…… who goes at 2:45 in the MORNING, to check on ”property” owned????
    this makes zero sense, especially someone worth millions……
    I don’t believe Revis for one second……………..
