NEW YORK - New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis turned himself in to police on Friday after police in Pennsylvania issued an arrest warrant over a confrontation he had with a group of men in Pittsburgh last weekend, according to local media footage.

Revis, 31, did not speak as he entered Pittsburgh Municipal Court around 7:30 p.m. local time, according to a recording published online by local broadcaster WTAE.

Revis, until recently considered one of the best defensive players in the National Football League, faces charges of robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault, Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Sonya Toler said in an email.

Revis, who is from the Pittsburgh-area city of Aliquippa, was charged in connection with an incident in which two men were knocked unconscious early on Sunday, police said in a statement.

Shortly after 2 a.m., the accusers, ages 21 and 22, were walking on a South Side Pittsburgh street when they spotted Revis and approached him, police said. One of the men then began videoing Revis with a mobile phone, police said.

"At some point, Revis snatched the cellphone away and attempted to delete the video" before tossing the phone onto the ground, police said.
