Darrelle Revis beatdown in Pittsburgh

jlukes : 2/16/2017 5:24 pm
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — New York Jets cornerback and former Pitt star Darrelle Revis has been injured after getting into an altercation on the South Side.

His lawyer told KDKA it happened when he came home to visit family and friends this weekend.

While he was in town, he was allegedly assaulted by a group of five people.

Revis’ lawyer said he feared for his safety and eventually went to get medical treatment.

There’s no word on how badly he was injured in the incident.

Which would be funny since the Steelers haven't had a competent cornerback in what seems like a decade

Sirius actually retweeted the article I linked. What did they report initially?

Two guys complemented his clothes and asked if he was Revis. He said yes and started walking. The 2 guys started following him and video taping him. Revis approached the guys amd tried to take their phone to delete the video and tried to smash the phone. Punches were thrown and one or 2 of the men were knocked out. One had fractures to his face. This happened supposedly around 2:30.
So Sirius's account paints Revis as the agressor

Yes. It was on the air shortly after you posted the article. In the Sirius report I think they said there was a cop driving around and saw some of it.

If true, Revis is an asshole. He should have just walked away. Now he could be sued in a civil court for a lot of money.
Ah

Following and video taping, I see two douchey sides here. Leave these dudes alone, man I miss the pre-smart phone days when seeing a celebrity was rare and kind of cool and not a moment to prove what a total dickbag you were.
No apparently Revis friends

Beat the guys down who were recording him

Don't pester people on the street if you don't want to get knocked out.
And if someone approaches you

in a restaurant, stab them with your salad fork.

Yup - the total appropriate response is grab the phone, throw the phone, then knock them both out.

I mean every day I get hassled on the subway by beggars it's instant KTFO.
Revis is getting cut...

robbery charged will be dropped. Terrorisitic threats is laughable. Conspiracy to do what? Pathetic.

Aggrevated assualt will be brought down to al ow class misdameanor. He will settle with them out of court. They will get some $$$ all charged will be dropped and more tax dollars go to waste.
It's possible, but I'd laugh my ass off

to see him do some jail time.
If he hit that hard with the Jets there wouldn't be talk about him

Terroristic threats?

What fucking moron thought up that one?
I thought this was a thread about the Steelers vs Jets game this year

Where Roethlisberger beat down that Jets' defense to the tune of 4 TD passes.

Saw this comment on Reddit:

"Prosecutor here-- First of all- Terroristic threats sounds much worse than it actually is. It is threating to commit a crime of violence against someone. So if mid fight you yell "I'm gonna fuck you up" "Kill your mom" whatever....we add T-Threats."
Well Revis has been assaulting wide receivers for years...

and getting away with it, so......
I don't condone violence.

But I don't think I'd be too pleased if someone was following & videotaping me.
Throw the N word out in a moment of anger  
Marine One : 2/18/2017 9:40 am : link
and see how fast one is charged with a hate crime! Today, it's all about the laundry list of charges to plea down! If you're roaming around Pitt at 2:30 in the morning when most idiots know they're not getting laid and feel all beerly balls, then you deserve what the night streets dig up and the cops heap on your plate! STUPID! Knock a guy out, he's lucky he's not consulting Ray Lewis on a defense alibi!
Yeah...  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 2/18/2017 10:23 am : link
If you say something to the effect of 'I'm going to f*cking kill you!', that constitutes a terroristic threat.

Revis will most likely walk away with probation, but it'll cost him some serious coin, i.e. lawyer's bill & probably a civil suit.
Just because he's a celebrity doesn't mean  
eclipz928 : 2/18/2017 10:41 am : link
Revis doesn't have civil rights, which includes the freedom from being harassed or followed around on the streets in the middle of the night.

Although it likely wouldn't be 100% true, it would be pretty easy for him to make the argument that at the moment he feared for his life and was defending himself. I'm sure the cell phone vid will add some context to help make that determination.

Also this could have been much worse - a lot of professional athletes carry guns on them specifically for situations like this, where it may not be very clear whether the person is a fan or trying to rob them.

The authorities have already seen the video from the phone. Then they decided to press charges against Revis, yet none against the other guys. That doesn't look good for Revis. Sure, more will become known to public, but the authorities obviously thought he was wrong enough, from whatever they seen, to go after him.
