Darrelle Revis turns himself in to Pittsburgh police

Darrelle Revis turns himself in to Pittsburgh police

The 31-year-old Aliquippa native and New York Jets cornerback was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, making terroristic threats and robbery in a complaint filed Thursday in Pittsburgh Municipal Court.

Revis was charged with four first-degree felonies and one misdemeanor.

Revis was accompanied by his lawyer, Blaine Jones, and his mother and aunt, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Police say the alleged fight started when a 22-year-old man, not identified in the statement, spotted Revis walking.

Revis then pulled the phone out of Cousins' hand, the report stated, and tried to delete the video.

An argument ensued, ending with another man helping Revis, according to the police statement.

The Jets cornerback appeared in court five days after the incident in which, after allegedly punching out two men so forcefully they were knocked unconscious for 10 minutes, Revis, with "an aggressive demeanor to his face" and clenched fists, threatened a third man by saying, "Do you want to be next?" and also warned, "I've got more guys coming". The video shows Revis walking away from the group, but they followed him.

Doan then took a taxi to Sky Star Hotel in Salak Tinggi, reaching it in about 10 minutes, and went up to Room 209. A source close to the Malaysian prime minister's office said police were still waiting for an autopsy.

Cousins was diagnosed with an orbital floor fracture.

Cousins said he tried to get the phone back, but Revis threw the phone into the middle of East Carson Street, attempting to break the phone. A male came to assist Revis.

Officers viewed the cellphone video at the scene and confirmed the person in it was Revis.

Jones said Revis will turn himself in but that Revis feared for his life, saying "without question" that the National Football League player was the victim.

The lawyer also told KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh that Revis was assaulted by a group of five people. A department spokesperson said they will not oblige.

For his part, Revis is adamant he was not the aggressor and says he only acted in self-defense from a drunk man who was flexing his "beer muscles". Last year, however, Revis showed wear and was beaten badly much of the season.

A spokesperson with the New York Jets told CNN on Thursday that the organization is aware of the incident, has spoken to Revis and would have no further comment at this time.
