Plaxico Burress

Indicted

8/3/2009 2:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Plaxico BurressA grand jury in New York has indicted ex-New York Giant Plaxico Burress on weapons charges.

Burress was indicted on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment.

Plax accidentally shot himself in the leg in a NYC nightclub back in November 2008. The gun was unlicensed and no one initially called police.

Antonio Pierce, a former teammate of Burress who was with him that night, was not indicted.

It's amazing to me how STUPID these pro athletes really are...it's time someone took a look at these guys when they are still children...teach them right from wrong before teaching them to play sports...teach them that just because someone is paying you a lot of money for "what you do...lol" doesn't give you the right to act like a complete idiot...it should mean just the opposite, but do these guys get that? NO - they continue to act the fool, and the world continues to shower them with praise and accolades, endorsements and deals...what a sad, sad world we live in...

Yea Rocko you are a dope no question. How much money is Plax gonna lose being out of the NFL while he is in jail? How much money is Plax gonna lose after Roger G. mulls over whether or not to reinstate him after he suspends him for oh I dunno a season? two seasons?

This is what Plax wanted. He wanted to be known as a ganster thug just like Tupac and Biggie and he got what he wanted. He's a tough guy thug that packs heat and he wanted it to be known. The problem is he's an even bigger idiot than you can imagine. Who carries a gun without a holster in sweatpants? Gangster idiot thugs like Plax. Who carries around a gun without a holster and with the safety off? Gangster idiot thugs who don't know their a** from their elbow. It's not so much that this moron gangster wannabee had a gun, he had a gun without a holster and carried it around with the safety off! In his gangster sweat pants. Way to go Plax. guess you won;'t be going to the bank cashing those big NFL checks now will you? Maybe your gangster rap wannabe teamates will help support you, your baby momma and your illegitimate kids.

Love the Lawyer    

UNLAWFUL POSSESION!! That is the crime. Why didn't the fool have it registered?? It's a city/state law that you cannot take a concealed weapon in a public place unless you are law enforcement.
How he carried it and tried to hide just shows what a moron he is. If they let Vick back in they will let this clown back in after he does his time.
