Manhattan Assistant District Legal professional Sarah Marquez stated that Revell twice advised the sufferer, an Asian man in his 40s, to “Return to your nation.”
Revell then proceeded to punch the sufferer, sort out him to the bottom and chunk “off the tip of the sufferer’s center finger leaving the bone absolutely uncovered,” Marquez stated.
All through the listening to, Revell blurted out quite a few instances, “I wish to discuss, I wish to discuss.”
“I by no means stated return to your nation!,” he insisted.

However Revell chimed in once more in response to Marquez explaining they’d surveillance video in addition to a bystander’s mobile phone video from the assault.
“There isn’t any audio or video there,” Revell claimed.
The choose then jumped in, telling Revell, “Okay. Thanks, sir.”
“By pleading not responsible you already stated that you simply didn’t do this stuff and now while you made statements sadly you’ve positioned your self on the location,” Ward stated.
An agitated Revell started to reply to the choose — however his legal protection lawyer Jennifer Hose reduce him off and stated, “I’d advise you to stay silent going ahead.”
Marquez requested to proceed bail for Revell — which is ready at $25,000 in response to courtroom information — noting that he has two prior convictions from 2015 for tried assault and rape.
Once more Revell interjected, “I’m not a rapist!” and “I’ll by no means belief the federal government once more!”
