Plaxico's Cop:

Burress Messed Up,

Not Me!

6/1/2009 5:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Plaxico BurressPlaxico Burress just got out of four traffic tickets on a technicality -- but the officer who gave him the tickets claims the NFL star is technically full of crap.

TMZ spoke with a rep for the Broward County Police who spoke with the officer who gave Plax the tickets (still following?) -- who told us the cop specifically remembers giving Plaxico the information she was required by law to give him -- which spells out how to pay or contest fines.

Plax claims he never got that information and there is no record to prove otherwise -- so the 4 tickets were thrown out.

The cop explained that the info comes in a flyer, and that she always puts the flyers in with the tickets -- and specifically remembers doing so for Plaxico. The cop even said she saw Plax toss it all onto the backseat of his car.

The cop also said she didn't know who Plaxico was when she pulled him over, but recalls the traffic stop for other reasons: in particular, she remembers how recklessly Plax was operating the car and how poor his attitude was when he was pulled over.

Bet his attitude is better now, huh?

Doubt the brother will be going to the joint with that tude towards law enforcement....he will do time for the gun charge, so sorry to hear he hasnt practiced how to be polite to the Man since the gun thing. He will soon enough. The Man can make things worse for you than a cellie with the hots for your anus.

Plaxico, gonna learn a lesson most Black people used to get as standard issue. Times have changed though...thankfully---i think...Sotomayor. Now Latina Women will rule not Brother Mean or the White Man.

This isn't about race, it's about money. Plex had the money for a top-flight attorney and therefore was able to get out of it. An "everyday Joe" would have had to plead guily and pay the fine. As usual, our justice system favors the folks with the most money, regardless of race.

Plaxico Burress is just another spoiled athlete, who thinks that because he's an NFL player, he's immune to laws that everyone ELSE has to follow. He's SUCH an idiot, and is going to jail, tickets or not. That part is justified. MORON!!
