Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was pulled over by the Livingston (N.J.) police Thursday morning for driving 81 mph in a 40-mph zone, according to the Municipal Court Administrator.
Due to the excessive speed he was traveling, Revis cannot pay his tickets and instead must appear in court on Nov. 4 at 9 a.m., according to the Livingston Municipal Court administrator. But if the cornerback obtains a lawyer, he can waive his first appearance.
Livingston police captain Jeffrey Payne confirmed to Newsday that Revis – who was pulled over at the intersection of W. Northfield Road and Wynnewood Rd -- was issued two motor vehicle tickets. “It was an uneventful motor vehicle stop,” Payne said.
Revis, who is nursing a hamstring injury, told reporters after Friday’s practice that he was “late for work” at the team’s practice facility in Florham Park. The Jets confirmed that Revis was late to a team meeting and as a result, he's subject to a league fine.
The cornerback’s status for Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos is uncertain due to the hamstring injury he suffered in the Jets’ Week 2 victory over New England. Revis is expected to travel with the team, head coach Rex Ryan said this week.
