Darrelle Revis turns himself in

AP

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis turned himself into to authorities in Pittsburgh on Friday evening.

Cameras from ESPN and other outlets were waiting as Revis arrived at the Pittsburgh Municipal Courts building. Revis faces four felony charges — including aggravated assault and robbery — and one misdemeanor charge stemming from an incident in Pittsburgh early last Sunday morning.

He was officially charged on Thursday. Revis didn’t speak to reporters as he entered the courts building.

The police report said officers found two men unconscious after some sort of incident with Revis in the city’s South Side area. Those men told officers they had a verbal altercation with Revis but didn’t know who had punched them. Revis threw a cellphone belonging to one of the men into the street, and he was charged after police viewed cellphone video of the incident.

The Jets released a statement Thursday that said they had spoken to Revis but had no further comment. The NFL has said it is looking into what happened.

  1. “I sought advice from my mentor Bill Belicheat and Aaron Hernandez to turn myself in. But I will use the Tom Brady defense and say I did not do this until the day I die”-Darrelle Revis

  2. Sign a couple of autos for the prosecutors and all will be forgotten. It’s how they roll in PIT (see Pig Ben).

    Dude, why bother?

  4. Offseason woes. What a shame. I hate seeing players get engulfed in these circumstances.
    They play a game, get idolized by fans, make decent money and then in a moment they get caught up.
    Stinks.

  5. I can’t wait to hear the NFLs spin on this one…

    “Darrelle Revis was involved in a fight at 2:40 a.m. Despite multiple reports, we have determined there is no video of this incident (video gets released the next day). After a thorough multi-million dollar investigation by our top investigators, we have determined that Mr. Revis was actually breaking up a fight amongst several gang members. We will award the Jets an additional first round pick for Mr. Revis’ heroic efforts.”

    – Roger Goodell, probably

    Something just doesn’t seem right about this story. I’ll bet he gets acquitted.
    ===================

    With his money? It doesn’t matter. He could slit someone’s throat on the 50 yd line of a packed stadium and get acquitted.

  8. He should have turned himself in for robbing the Jets the last 2 years. Then again, WJohnson gets what he deserves after Goodell let him skate for tampering. Turnabout is fair play.

  9. Revis’ agent has the patriots on line 1 given their penchant for seeking out lawbreakers for their roster.

    I don’t care for him either, but as a former prosecutor, this is by far a slam dunk case. If he has good counsel, and he will, he walks.

    And yet the cops, who saw the video, know who he is and how impressive his resources are put out an arrest warrant out for him. So forgive us our skepticism of your ‘professional’ anonymous internet opinion of the merits of the case. It’s also hard to believe with all your troll posts elsewhere that you achieved the level of education necessary to have ever been a prosecutor, so there is that for us to consider as well.

  11. Totally unbelievable that a multi-millionaire like Revis needs to get into a bar fight, or whatever that was that got him arrested. Can’t these guys just enjoy their money in a legal way? Or is the brawling just in their nature?

  12. What the hell is going on? Why would Revis need to rob anoyone? Why would he need to assault anyone? Did he somehow forget for a few minutes that he is an incredibly rich NFL superstar?

    Nothing about this makes sense.

    Wow. The hurt is strong in this one.

  14. No dog in this hunt but last night here in Pittsburgh on local sports talk, people calling in saying idiots recognized him in a bar, harassed him, and followed him out to the street when he was try to leave them.

    Joey Porter, Mike Adams…..all with trouble on the South Side here.

    A place to avoid.

  15. get bill polian on the phone and ask marvin harrison
    how they colluded with goodell to pay off the philly
    da to cover his attempted street murder of
    a child after he choked a ball boy at the pro bowl

    fascinating watching goodell maneuver

  16. One takeaway from this….Revis may be slower on the field these days. But he is still insanely faster than us normal folk.

  17. Innocent until proven guilty.

    But geez, it’s hard to fathom this kind of stuff. It must suck to be unable to go out and just be one of the guys and not have schmucks harass you.

  18. soon or later you’ll be arrested. might as well turn yourself in to get the leniency of the law… well, hopefully lol

  19. As a former prosecutor, there are some serious deficiencys with this case. What was on the cell video and can they find his buddy that helped him out? Key witness for the defense.

    Initial reports indicate that the young dudes wouldn’t leave him alone, followed him, he gAve them fair warning, and they wouldn’t leave him alone. Harrasment? Self defense? I have no clue but this case is not a slam dunk!

  20. Remember these key words: beyond a reasonable doubt. That is the burden the prosecution must carry for criminal trials. I don’t see it!

    Word to Revis, what the hell were you doing walking around down town S. Pitt at 3 am. Really, seriously? The bars were closed. What were you looking for? You reap what you sow.
