New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is in some trouble with the law.
According to reports, Revis was involved in a street fight outside of a Pittsburgh bar which has resulted in five charges being filed against him, including four felonies.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported the news.
From the report:
Police said the confrontation, which occurred about 2:40 a.m. Sunday in the 23rd block of East Carson Street, involved at least eight men, two of whom were knocked unconscious for “at least 10 minutes.” One of the men, Dallas Cousins, 22, of Kittanning, suffered broken bones around his left eye.
Charges against Mr. Revis, filed in a complaint Thursday night, include two counts of aggravated assault, as well as robbery, conspiracy and making terroristic threats.
The Jets simply commented on the matter, “We are aware of the incident and have spoken to Darrelle.”
Revis’ attorney says he was not the aggressor. We will have to see if the NFL takes any actions against Revis as the situation continues to play out.
