Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was not only the victim in Sunday morning's altercation which resulted in two men being knocked unconscious, according to his attorney, but Pittsburgh police also never contacted him or returned phone calls to get his side of the story, Connor Hughes of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

"There are two sides to the quarter," Blaine Jones said Thursday night in a press conference. "And it seems only the tail side was spoken to."

Early Sunday morning in Pittsburgh, Revis was involved in an altercation that left him injured, said Jones.

According to Jones, Revis was in town to review one of his real estate investments when a heavily intoxicated man approached him on Pittsburgh's South Side. The man shoulder-checked Revis, at which time Revis asked him to calm down.

The man refused, so Revis told him who he was and that he played in the NFL. When things remained hostile, Revis turned and walked away, according to Jones. At this time, several people in the man's group pursued Revis.

"Darrelle Revis was not the aggressor in this situation," Jones said. "Darrelle Revis did not initiate any of the physical contact in this situation. Darrelle Revis was in fear of his safety."

Jones said he made "several" calls to the Pittsburgh Police Department, per Revis' request, hoping to tell his side of the story. None of those calls was returned.
