Former Tampa Bay Bucs’ cornerback Darrelle Revis is in trouble, and this time, it isn’t because of a blown coverage.
Revis has been charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor following a scuffle that left two men unconscious in the street.
Revis’ attorney, Blaine Jones, told ESPN that he was trying to get Revis to surrender to police. Jones said Revis was attacked by at least five men and “feared for his safety.”
Revis is a former Tampa Bay cornerback who now plays for the New York Jets. In his career, Revis has been so good in coverage that his area of the field was referred to as “Revis Island.” Last year, however, Revis showed wear and was beaten badly much of the season.
Two men told police they were punched by Revis after a verbal confrontation. Evidently, the men – ages 22 and 23 – had begun following Revis and video-taping him on a cell phone. Revis supposedly threw the phone into the street and punched the men, knocking them out for 10 minutes.
One of the men suffered a fracture of the orbital bone.
