What a Dummy Looks Like: Plaxico Turns Himself In

After “supposedly” shooting himself in the leg at a NYC club Friday night, NY Giants star receiver Plaxico Burress has turned himself in:

NEW YORK (AP) — Plaxico Burress arrived at a police station early Monday morning, where he was expected to be charged after accidentally shooting himself in the right thigh.The New York Giants star wide receiver arrived in a black Cadillac Escalade wearing jeans and a black coat. Burress, who was not visibly limping, did not speak to the media and walked directly into the precinct.

Burress’ lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Sunday that he was advised the player planned to plead not guilty to criminal possession of a weapon. “I do not expect that Mr. Burress will make a statement,” Brafman wrote. He met with Burress for about an hour Sunday at the player’s home in New Jersey.

“I would ask that his fans, the Giants and the media withhold judgment in this matter until all of the facts have been disclosed,” Brafman wrote to the AP.

Brafman is a well-known criminal lawyer who has defended mobsters and other high-profile figures, including hip-hop impresario Sean “Diddy” Combs on a bribery and gun possession charge in 2001.

Burress shot himself at a Manhattan nightclub Friday night and was released from a hospital early Saturday, the Giants said.

Someone needed to tell the dummy that he shouldn’t be going to a club where he thinks he needs to carry some live heat. You’re not a thug, matter of fact, Fu*k a Thug.

When you come and make it, keep it simple, fall back, you’re extremely fortunate. The media is always waiting in the cut to hang your Black ass.

    “No study is required, man. The amount of stupidity is exponentially proportional to how much money they get paid! Just ask anybody on the 1990s Dallas Cowboys offensive line!”

    LOL. There are numerous examples of “MichaelVicktitis.” The only known treatments are jail and dissolution of the contract. **sigh**
