Plaxico Burress, who is only seven months into a two-year prison term for weapons possession, has already gotten himself into trouble according to the New York Post.
Burress apparently told a guard that he had permission to use his cell phone to call his attorney and the guard believed him. But Plax (gasp!) didn’t have permission and now he has lost his recreation privileges for a month and his cell phone for a week.
The real question is why Burress is even allowed to have a cell phone in prison. Does he also get a free breakfast buffet and Wi-Fi with his stay too? A mint on his pillow? Access to the swimming pool at night?
It’s nice to see that Burress isn’t given any special treatment because he’s a star athlete. I’m sure he’s really feeling the effects of capital punishment.
