Charges are pending against Jets star cornerback Darrelle Revis after an altercation occurred last weekend in Pittsburgh, where he grew up and attended college, according to multiple reports.

Those charges include robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault, according to Pittsburgh police.

The statement filed by police indicates that officers found a 21-year-old man and 22-year-old man unconscious at 2:43 a.m. on Sunday morning. After reviewing cell phone video filmed by one of the victims, police confirmed the pair's report that they had been following and recording Revis until the NFL veteran snatched the phone away and tried to delete the video.

Revis then threw the phone in the street, prompting an argument. Another man arrived to support Revis, and the two victims were knocked out for about 10 minutes, according to witnesses.

Revis' lawyer had previously told KTKA in Pittsburgh that five men assaulted the 31-year-old while he was in town to visit family. That attorney later told NFL Network that he had not yet spoken to Pittsburgh Police.

The Jets informed the team's beat reporters that they were aware of the incident and had spoken to Revis but would have no further comment, according to NBC's ProFootballTalk.
