Plaxico Burress

Beats 125 MPH

Speeding Ticket!!!

11/5/2012 10:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Plaxico Burress
-- the unemployed NFL star who famously shot  himself in the leg -- just skated on a speeding ticket because the cop shot himself in the foot!

Plaxico was cited for going 125 MPH in Broward County, FL -- 70 miles over the speed limit in his 2012 Ferrari.

So how, you ask, does someone beat the rap?  You hire Bradford Cohen, who showed the judge the ticket, which cited the wrong law. The cop amended his copy of the ticket after the fact, but it didn't match up with Plaxico's copy.

Call it a technicality, but it did the trick.

Plaxico is now free to do anything but take a gun into a nightclub. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
