    More Guns Taken From Plax

    Looks like the boiling water may have gotten a little deeper for our former Steeler Plaxico Burress.....

    Weapons, ammo, pants seized at Burress’ NJ home

    A small cache of weapons and ammunition and the pants and sneakers that Plaxico Burress wore when he accidentally shot himself last month have been seized from the home of the New York Giants receiver, police said Wednesday.

    A 9-mm handgun, a rifle and ammunition, including a clip for a .45 gun, were taken from Burress’ home in Totowa by authorities executing a search warrant Tuesday evening, police said.

    Investigators are trying to determine whether the weapons are registered, so it is unclear whether Burress will face additional charges.

    Burress was charged with two felony gun-possession charges following the accidental shooting at a Manhattan nightclub last month.

    Benjamin Brafman, the receiver’s criminal attorney, said Wednesday morning that he believed that only a registered rifle was taken from the home. He did not know whether Burress would face additional charges.

    “We have not had a chance to review this new information,” Brafman said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday morning. “When we do, we will have additional comment.”

    Burress was not at home during the search by Totowa police, the NYPD and officials from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. His wife was there, police said. Brafman said his client was out of town but did not elaborate.

    The New York Post reported that authorities discovered a suitcase full of money, but police said that was unsubstantiated.

    Burress accidentally shot himself in the right thigh at the Latin Quarter nightclub on Nov. 29 when he fumbled with an unlicensed handgun tucked into the waistband of his sweat pants. He checked himself into New York-Cornell Hospital and later turned himself in to police.

    The Giants suspended Burress for the rest of the season and also withheld $1 million owed to him as part of his signing bonus.

    Burress is due back in court March 31 and faces up to 3 1/2 years in prison on each count.

    Burress was also sued last week in Florida’s Broward County Circuit Court for rear-ending a woman in May while driving his nearly $140,000 Mercedes-Benz.

    According to a document provided by the woman’s attorney, his car insurance lapsed three days before the crash. A letter from Allstate says Burress neglected to pay his premiums.

    Associated Press writer Colleen Long contributed to this report.

    Why would Burress still have the pants that he wore when he was shot? They probably cut them off at the hospital, but even if they didn't why would he save them......they had to be full of blood. Perhaps just in cast the Hall of Fame asked for them?

    If those weapons are NOT registered then Burress is too stupid to be walking around the streets without a handler.
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity

    His ego is bigger than his brain perhaps?

    would it be insensitive to change his nickname to either "Plexigun" or "Plexiglock" and is there any truth to the rumour that he petitioned the NFL to have his Jersey number changed to "357" and his last name legally changed to "Magnum"
