Attorneys for Darrelle Revis say he did not punch anyone
Video has emerged from the aftermath of New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis’s recent criminal altercation in Pittsburgh, which has led to his arrest on multiple felony counts.
TMZ released video on Sunday of two men knocked out and laying on the ground, as another man yells in the background.
TMZ confirmed with Pittsburgh police that the video is from the Feb. 12 incident involving the seven-time Pro Bowler. The voice shouting in the background is believed to be Revis.

"Darrelle Revis absolutely, categorically and positively did not knock out anyone, did not conspire with anyone to commit an assault, did not say 'shut up before I knock your ass out next,' and surely did not 'rob' another of a cell phone," Revis' attorneys Robert G. Del Greco Jr. and Mark Fiorilli said in a statement to USA Today. "The voice and admissions made on the video are NOT that of Darrelle Revis. We have no doubt but that further investigation relative to the clothing and voice verification will corroborate the above assertions."
Revis has remained adamant that he was ganged up on and acted in self-defense. Revis is being charged with robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault.
Revis is due back in court on Thursday for a preliminary hearing.
