New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has had his court date pushed back to March 15, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Revis’ court date was originally scheduled for February 23.

Revis turned himself in to authorities on February 19 stemming from his alleged involvement in a street altercation in Pittsburgh. He was arraigned on Friday and was released on non-monetary bond, according to NFL.com.

Revis, 31, was recently charged with with four felonies: two counts of aggravated assault, one count of conspiracy, and one count of robbery. He was also charged with terroristic threats, which is a misdemeanor.

The incident took place on Sunday at 2:43 a.m. ET on Pittsburgh’s South Side. Dallas Cousins and Zacheriah Jarvis, who are roommates, told police that the veteran cornerback punched them in the middle of an argument.

Cousins and Jarvis, ages 22 and 21, were unconscious for 10 minutes. According to the police report, Cousins was walking on a street and spotted someone who looked like Revis. The 22-year-old went up to him, and the veteran cornerback confirmed his identity. Then, Cousins followed Revis and began video recording him on his cellphone.

According to the police statement, via ESPN: "At some point, Revis snatched the cellphone away and attempted to delete the video." The police statement also said Revis threw the cellphone onto the roadway, and Jarvis helped retrieve it.

An argument occurred afterwards, and an unidentified man came over to assist Revis. Cousins and Jarvis told the police they “were punched, then remember waking up to talk to police."

Nathan Watt, who witnessed the incident, told police that the veteran cornerback came up to him after Cousins and Jarvis were knocked unconscious. He said Revis told him, "I got more guys coming."

The complaint also said Revis "stepped within a foot of his face with an aggressive demeanor on his face, fists clenched, and stated, 'Do you want to be next?'"

However, Watt told the police he did not know if the unidentified guy or Revis knocked out Cousins and Jarvis. “I don't know. It happened so fast.”

Cousins and Jarvis said they took themselves to the hospital and mentioned Cousins suffered an orbital floor fracture.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed to NFL.com that the league plans to investigate this matter.

Revis did not speak to waiting reporters when arriving at the Pittsburgh Municipal Courts building on Friday evening.

Revis grew up in Aliquippa, PA, played college football at the University of Pittsburgh, and was drafted by the Jets in 2007. He is a seven-time Pro Bowler, a Super Bowl champion, and considered one of the best cornerbacks of all time.

He spent his first six seasons in New York, where he earned the nickname “Revis Island” because of his great coverage skills. Revis played one season in Tampa Bay, signed with the New England Patriots in 2014, and returned to the Big Apple in 2015.

Revise signed a five-year deal worth $70 million in 2015. He only has three years left on that contract, and he is set to make $15.3 million this season. New York might release him after his play regressed last season.
