Plaxico Burress Turns Himself In Over Weapons Charges in Nightclub

Plaxico Burress Under Arrest

Plaxico Burress Under Arrest

Over the weekend, NFL star Plaxico Burress shot himself accidently in his leg when a concealed weapon on his person fell down his pants leg and went off.

Yesterday, NYPD went to Burress’ home to retrieve the gun.  Burress was not at home, and while there was no search warrant, but someone at the house was authorized by Burress to surrender the weapon.  Representatives for Burress also made a statement that he would turn himself in.

Just this morning, Burress voluntarily turned himself into the police and plead “not guilty” to charges of illegal possession of a weapon, which is a felony.  Burress may also face charges of reckless endangerment.

Burress’ lawyer has stated that his client “intends to address the charges in a responsible manner as a true professional.”

We’ll be keeping track of this story as it develops.
