Plaxico Burress turns himself into authorities

New York Giants’ wide receiver Plaxico Burress turned himself into New York authorities Monday morning. He faces charges of criminal possession of a weapon after he was accidentally shot in the leg by his own gun Friday inside a club.

Plaxico BurressBurress arrived in a black SUV, wearing a black blazer, jeans and a collared shirt. One accessory he didn’t have was a pair of crutches. Burress was walking ably, an indication the gunshot wound he suffered was as minor as reported by the team and his lawyer, Ben Brafman, who escorted Burress into the station this morning.

Burress didn’t respond to one person who yelled, “Plaxico,” and didn’t acknowledge any of the reporters on the scene. According to police, he’s expected to remain inside for about an hour. There are also rumblings he might leave the building in handcuffs.

Brafman said Burress will plead not guilty to criminal possession of a weapon.

The NBC Sunday night halftime crew was talking about the possibility of Burress facing jail time if he’s convicted. It’s highly doubtful that would happen, although maybe he needs some time in jail to get his freaking mind straight. The Giants just handed him a contract extension to honor his great play and he’s been nothing but a headache since.

And yet, the Giants continue to win with or without him. That’s a testament to Tom Coughlin and the rest of the players on the team.
