I'm not sure there's much else to add tonight. This is an ongoing legal case, and many of the facts are unknown. I have no interest in speculating anything.

UPDATE (7:30 p.m. by John B):
The Pittsburgh Police have released the following on their website:
PITTSBURGH, PA – On Sunday, February 12 at approximately 2:43 a.m., Zone 3 Officers were dispatched to the intersection of S. 23rd and E. Carson streets for a report that two males had been knocked unconscious. According to the investigation, a 22-year-old male from Kittanning was walking along E. Carson Street when he spotted a male who resembled Aliquippa native Darrell Revis, a cornerback in the NFL. He asked if the man was Darrell Revis and he confirmed that he was. The male began recording the interaction on his cellphone and continued following Revis. At some point, Revis snatched the cellphone away and attempted to delete the video. Another 21-year-old male from Ross Township attempted to help the 22-year-old retrieve the cellphone. Revis then tossed the phone onto the roadway. A verbal argument followed. A male came to assist Revis. Both the 22-year-old and the 21-year-old state they were punched then remember waking up to talk to police. Witnesses state the two were unconscious for about 10 minutes. The Officers viewed the cellphone video and confirmed that the person was Revis. Charges are pending against the 31-year-old Revis to include robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault.
According to several sources Darrelle Revis was involved last weekend in the early morning hours in an altercation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
This story is very preliminary and details are sketchy at this time. Some sources say as many as five people were involved opposite Revis and perhaps a friend; others say it was just two people.
Sources say these people recognized Revis on the street and approached him, asking if he was Darrelle Revis. Revis allegedly said yes, he was. Sources say Revis was then followed and filmed. Revis allegedly confronted the people filming and an altercation ensued.
At least one source alleges Revis is now under investigation by the Pittsburgh police department in connection with the incident.
This is a very preliminary stage of investigating and reporting regarding the alleged incident, and nothing should be assumed at this time. It is likely details will emerge in the coming days which alter the current understanding.
