Update: See mug of Anthony West, fugitive at center of Gary Revis mistaken identity standoff

Update with new photo below: If Gary Revis had simply remained cool, he probably wouldn't be facing major charges following a long SWAT team standoff in Aurora. But cool he wasn't.

Revis's actions after being mistaken for Anthony West, who's suspected in a domestic violence incident, have landed him in jail. Meanwhile, West remains at large as of this writing. Details below.
