TMZ released a video that shows two men on the ground, who are apparently unconscious, while a voice is heard saying, “I knocked both of these motherfuckers out.” The video is allegedly from the scene in Pittsburgh where Darrelle Revis is said to have gotten into a fight. The New York Jets cornerback was the only one arrested from the physical altercation that occurred in the early hours of Feb 12.
The man who is screaming in the video was not seen, but he did brag about knocking the two dudes out and then threatened another person.
“I knocked both of these motherfuckers out. Both of them. They both sleeping. Shut up before I knock your ass out next.”
Blaine Jones, the former attorney for Revis, said the cornerback was acting in self-defense from an intoxicated man who was flexing his “beer muscles.”
Robert G. Del Greco Jr. and Mark Fiorilli, the new attorneys representing Revis, responded to the video on Sunday night by issuing a statement:
“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. 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 is facing felony charges of robbery, aggravated assault, and conspiracy. Revis turned himself in on Friday and was released on a non-cash bond. He faces a preliminary hearing on Thursday.
For comparison, here is what Revis sounds like when he is yelling.
So is that Revis on the video bragging that he just knocked out two men?
