Jets' Revis Turns Himself In to Pittsburgh Police

Top Sports

Police say it happened early Sunday when a 22-year-old man recognized Revis while walking down the street. He must appear at all hearings and submit his passport and can not have contact of any kind with the alleged victims and witnesses.

With Revis having turned himself in, Jones is no longer representing the 31-year-old.

"There are two sides to the quarter", Revis' attorney, Blaine Jones, said Thursday.

However, Watt told the police he did not know if the unidentified guy or Revis knocked out Cousins and Jarivs. Dallas Cousins and Zacheriah Jarvis, who are roommates, told police that the veteran cornerback punched them in the middle of an argument. Witnesses claim the two were unconscious for "about 10 minutes". After Revis confirmed he was the National Football League player, the man started recording the interaction. The complaint added that 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?'"

Rich Cimini of ESPN.com summarizes the incident report, pointing out that there is now no specific evidence that Revis punched either of the two victims. Bobby Del Greco will be Revis' lawyer going forward.


West said Revis and the other man fled the scene as he attempted to wake Cousins and Jarvis.

The officer observed Cousins with a contusion above his left eyebrow and a one-inch laceration and Jarvis with a contusion on his right cheek.

When asked if Revis threw any punches, Jones responded: "All I can tell you is that if any punches were thrown, they were thrown in self defense". A cab driver and a resident also called 911, both saying they saw two men unconscious in the street.

One of the NFL's most accomplished players, Revis is facing an uncertain future with the Jets. He's due a $2 million roster bonus on March 11, plus another $13 million in base salary (including $6 million guaranteed). He's also been charged with making terroristic threats, which is a misdemeanor.

Camera crews and a dozen reporters had been stationed outside Pittsburgh Municipal Court for several hours Friday waiting for Revis, who grew up in nearby Aliquippa and attended Pitt, to turn himself in after an arrest warrant was issued.
