According to Livesteez, Plaxico Burress, who shot him self in the leg the other night at a club, has been charged with 2 felony counts:

New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress was arraigned Monday on two felony counts of criminal possession of a handgun in the second degree after accidentally shooting himself in the thigh three days ago at a Midtown nightclub. The New York Giants star faces a mandatory sentence of 3 ½ years in state prison, with a maximum of 15 years, on each count, according to reports. He spent about five hours at the New York City Police Department’s 17th Precinct station house, likely posing for mug shots, being fingerprinted and sitting for interviews with detectives. Burress left a New York police station in handcuffs Monday after surrendering on the weapons possession charge, and police said that his teammate Antonio Pierce is being investigated over accusations that he tried to hide the gun that Burress shot himself with Friday evening, as reported by The firearm in question, a Glock semiautomatic pistol, was recovered at Burress’s home in Totowa, N.J., an official said. Burress remained seated on a bench at the back of the Manhattan courtroom while waiting to post the $100,000 bail, cash or bond, set by Criminal Court Judge Felicia Mennin, according to the New York Times. The judge denied a request by Burress’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, to allow Burress to be released for 48 hours to post that bail. She then ordered Burress to return March 31. Speaking to reporters after Burress’ arrival at the precinct, Brafman said his client would “deal with the legal process in a responsible and professional manner.”

See the brother to the right of Plaxico giving him the side-eye? We are all looking at this dummy like that. Get those stacks and gain some class. Bettering yourself and your family out weighs your street cred and adolescent behavior.

F*ck a Thug.
