Tis the season to be foolish … Plaxico Burress finds himself potentially in even more trouble. Plaxico may want to take a page from Warren Zevon … Lawyer, Guns and Money. Hey Plaxico … “I’m a desperate man, send lawyers guns and money … the s#%t has hit the fan.”
As if New York Giants WR Plaxico Burress was not already in enough trouble with the law stemming from his gun accidently discharging in a Manhattan night club shooting himself in the leg. The result, his subsequent suspension from the Giants, implication of other team members and legal issues. Well it may have got even worse for the troubled Plaxico Burress. Yesterday police served a search warrant on Burress’ home in Totowa, NJ and police seized a cache of guns.
Police yesterday seized a small cache of weapons and ammo from the Totowa, NJ, home of troubled Giants star Plaxico Burress, possibly setting up the suspended grid star for more legal trouble, law-enforcement sources said.
If the guns are unlicensed, the embattled wide receiver could face additional charges in New Jersey on top of the felony gun-possession charges he was slapped with after shooting himself in the leg at a Manhattan nightclub last month.
What did police find in the search … guns and money. No wonder Plaxico need a good lawyer. Plaxico may be facing new charges as a result of the search.
Seized in the raid were one 9 mm handgun, a rifle and ammo for three additional guns – a .380, a .45 and a .40, which is the caliber of gun with which he accidentally shot himself in the leg.
Also found in the execution of the search warrant – but not seized, since it was unconnected to any criminal allegations – was a suitcase full of money, sources said.
If things were not bad enough on the weapons front, a South Florida woman is suing Burress alleging her car was rear ended by Burress’ uninsured Mercedes Benz.
