Burress is currently dealing with the weapons possession charges in New York, but he may be speeding toward additional charges in a completely unrelated case.

A lawsuit has been filed in Florida by Alise Smith, who alleges that Burress rear-ended her car back in May.  She claims she suffered back and neck injuries from the car accident.  The suit is seeking $15,000 for lost wages, medical bills and vehicle damages.

What could prove to be an additional issue for Burress is that Smith claims she has proof that Burress was driving without insurance, as he did not pay his premiums and the insurance lapsed three days before the May 16th accident.

Star of The Sopranos and A Bronx Tale Guilty of Attempted Burglary

Lillo Brancato Jr. Found Guilty

Lillo Brancato Jr. Found Guilty

Actor Lillo Brancato Jr, who starred in a few early episodes of The Sopranos and co-starred alongside Robert DeNiro in A Bronx Tale, has been found guilty on charges of attempted burglary.

The criminal case stems back to 2005, when Brancato and his friend Steven Armento broke into a man’s home looking for Valium.  Brancato said during his trial that the home’s owner gave them permission to stop by whenever they wanted some pills.

The criminal activity took a tragic turn when during the break-in Daniel Enchautegui, a cop that lived next door, came by to investigate. Armento shot the off-duty cop in the chest, who died at the scene. Enchautegui shot both Brancato and Armento several times before dying. Armento was found guilty of murder in November, and was sentenced to life in prison.

While Brancato was found guilty of attempted burglary, he was acquitted on two other burglary counts and a murder charge. Brancato could face up to 15 years for the attempted burglary charge.
