Plaxico Burress

Driver's License

Suspended

3/25/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0322-plaxico-burress-tmz
Plaxico Burress
finally has an NFL team, but now he might have trouble getting to practice ... his driver's license has been suspended ... after failing to cough up a 6-figure judgment to a car crash victim.

According to official records in Florida ... Plaxico -- who JUST signed a 1-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers this month -- will officially lose his driving privileges Monday.

Here's why ... as TMZ previously reported, a woman named Alise Smith sued Plaxico, claiming he caused a car crash that injured her.  She won, and he was ordered to pay $125,000 in damages.

According to Alise, Plax never paid (he tried appealing) ... so her lawyer, James Dunn, fired off a letter to the FL DMV requesting that his license be suspended -- yeah they can do that -- and the DMV made it happen.

To get it back Plax must pay the judgment OR challenge the DMV's actions.

Either way ... come Monday ... it's carpool time.

I know a few biking outlets that have great bikes. Plax I can refer them to you in your area, but I'm sure you can afford a cab or limo driver.

He should win it back if the case is under appeal, it would be different if he lost his appeal. plus he can always get special cir***stances that allow him to drive to and from work.

TMZ should get Cameras out in Pittsburgh Night Clubs, Plaxico and Ben might go out together one with a loaded gun in his pants ready to shoot himself, and the other with a loaded pistol in his pants ready to shoot some woman.

My husband grew up in Pittsburgh and he's one of those rabid Steelers fans (we're live in Ravens territory) and he thinks Burress' gun should have had better aim. Once a punk always a punk.

OooooNooo!    

He'll just drive on a suspended license. What can they do? Nothing. If 3-DUIs don;t get you jail time, what will an out of state suspended license get you?
