Burress was driving without insurance before crash


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP)—Add this to the growing list of Plaxico Burress’ problems: getting in a car crash and not having insurance on his nearly $140,000 Mercedes-Benz.

The suspended New York Giants wide receiver was sued last week in Florida’s Broward County Circuit Court for rear-ending a woman in May.

Compounding the Super Bowl star’s defense, according to a document provided by the woman’s attorney, is the fact his car insurance lapsed three days before the crash. A letter from Allstate says Burress neglected to pay his premiums.

Burress’ attorney, Adam Swickle, declined comment.

Burress is still serving a team suspension for shooting himself Nov. 29 in a nightclub with an illegally carried handgun. Burress shot himself at the Latin Quarter when he accidentally pulled the trigger on the .40-caliber Glock that was in his pants after fumbling a drink.

Teammate Antonio Pierce took the 31-year-old who caught the winning pass in the Super Bowl to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center for treatment.

Burress pleaded not guilty and was released on $100,000 bail. He is due back in court March 31.

He was placed on the team’s suspended/non-football injury list, and the NFL Players Association filed a grievance. The union said the Giants violated the collective bargaining agreement when they placed Burress on that list, suspended him for the final four games of the regular season and fined him an additional week’s salary for conduct detrimental to the team.

How exactly do you plead not guilty to shooting yourself ?

Maybe something like this:


Your honor, it is the defendants contention that while he was enjoying himself in a responsible manor, a pistol that he owns, illegally entered the establishment and shot my client. My client is the victim here. The pistol is the perpetrator of the crime. I move to dismiss all charges

In related stories:

Burress' attorney has filed a $100M suit against Glock. The suit alleges that Glock is negligent for producing a handgun without proper safety features. It is clear that the dual trigger safety is not effective when carrying a Glock in your pants pocket with your pants worn such that the pockets drag on the ground. Glock issued a statement saying they suggested that Mr Burress pull up his pants and wear a belt.

He is also considering a civil suit for discrimination against all pants manufacturers for not providing explicit instructions warning owners not to carry a loaded weapon in their pants.

The ACLU has filed suit against the state of NY, citing violation of Mr. Burress' freedom of expression. They contend that Burress has the right to shoot himself wherever and whenever he wishes. The suit also seeks to eliminate an individual taking responsibility for their own actions.

The NFL Players Union is suing the Giants for enforcing the terms of Burress contract. In a statement the NFLPA issued, they state "There is an awful lot of small writing on those contracts and the players can't be expected to read all of that crap"

Now this week the feds raided his house and found a cache of guns and ammo. Every unregistered gun adds to possible jail time. Just cut all ties with is guy as done with Shockey. That worked out fine. He can have Vick's cell when he gets out.

You can take the person out of the hood, but you cant take the hood out of the person... Ask Michael Vick and his brother, Mr "Im moving on to the next level."
