Eventually, Revis became enraged, snatched the cellphone and attempted to delete the video before tossing it on the street.
The 21-year-old and the 22-year-old say they were then both punched and knocked out, according to the statement, which said that area witnesses indicated they had been unconscious for 10 minutes. Beau Berman of WTAE tweeted that a local police officer saw Revis talking with two men.
Meanwhile, charges filed against Revis include robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault. The male began recording the interaction on his cellphone and continued following Revis, who played college football at Pittsburgh. Revis then tried to get out of there, his attorney said, but the intoxicated man followed him and shouted his name.

Police have since released a statement supporting this version of events. Revis' attorney, Blaine Jones, told ESPN that he was trying to reach Revis Thursday night to arrange for him to surrender to police.
"Mr. Revis feared for his safety and retreated from the aggressors", according to Jones.
