Two Giants Stars Could Face Arrest After Shooting

11/30/2008 8:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Plaxico BurressNY Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress may be arrested on felony gun charges after shooting himself in a NYC club this weekend, and his teammate could be charged with trying to cover it up.

Burress went to the Latin Quarter nightclub but was initially turned away, according to the New York Daily News. But the paper says club management had a change of heart after Burress came back, "flashing jewelry and carrying loads of cash," reportedly telling management he needed the gun for protection.

According to the Daily News, Burress was being taken into a VIP area when he fumbled with the gun as it began slipping down his pant leg. The gun fired, and the bullet tore through his leg.

According to the paper Burress told his teammate Antonio Pierce not to call 911. Pierce then reportedly helped Burress out of the club and they allegedly 86'd the gun somewhere in New Jersey.

The Daily News claims Burress tried hard to cover it all up, but the plan was foiled after a Giants employee called the NYPD and reported the incident.

Hey Kelli....look on the bright side.......Jerry Jones probably has a contract all ready for Burress to sign to join HIS Dallas Convicts since they LOVE trouble makers and felons.

Sinister.    

Gigitty that comment you made was just as dumb as him carrying the gun, I want to know what he was thinking going out to a club knowing he wasn't playing on Sunday cause he had a leg problem.

Ahahahahaha, I love the visual of him finally getting into the VIP area, all full of himself and the gun sliding down his leg and BAM! He shoots himself in the leg! aahahaha! What a total tool! Too bad it didn't hit a bit higher to render him sterile because this dumbass definitely doesn't need to be breeding.

"by the truth" you are right about Southern Va. growing these horrid thugs in sports - I happened to live very close to where Iverson went to high school and he was getting into trouble by being a bad person way back then, but it got swept under the rug because he was a good athlete. Time to stop letting them skate because they only become thugs with some money and act even worse.

Now I am thinking if we could put this nimrod, Diddly, Iverson and Vick into a capsule to visit the sun, this country would be a much better place...... ahhhhh...
