We've learned Plaxico Burress arrived at Rikers Island jail in New York at 1:20 PM ET, this according to Deputy Commissioner for NYC Dept. of Corrections Steve Morello.
We're told Plax's stay will be a short one -- he'll be shipped off tomorrow to his next destination ... Fishkill Correctional Facility.
While Plax is behind bars at Rikers, we're told he'll be staying in an individual cell -- meaning no cell mate -- which includes a mattress, sheet and blanket, drinking cup, faucet, toilet, toilet paper and soap.
Also, we're told Plax will shower separately because of his celebrity status -- so he can drop the soap all he wants.
We're told Plax's meals will be delivered to his cell -- for dinner tonight he'll have hot dogs, beans, whole wheat bread and fruit. For breakfast tomorrow he'll get fruit, grits, whole wheat bread and his choice of coffee or tea.
