Reports: Weapons, ammo seized at Burress' home

Rpt: Authorities Find Two Guns In Home Of BurressA small cache of weapons and ammunition, plus the pants and sneakers that Plaxico Burress wore when he accidentally shot himself last month, have been seized from the home of the New York Giants receiver, police said Wednesday.

A 9-mm handgun, a rifle and ammunition, including a clip for a .45 gun, were taken from Burress' home in Totowa, N.J., by authorities executing a search warrant Tuesday evening, police said.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the weapons are registered, so it is unclear whether Burress will face additional charges.

Burress was charged with two felony gun-possession charges following the accidental shooting at a Manhattan nightclub last month.

Benjamin Brafman, the receiver's criminal attorney, said Wednesday morning he believed that only a registered rifle was taken from the home. He did not know whether Burress would face additional charges.

"We have not had a chance to review this new information," Brafman said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday morning. "When we do, we will have additional comment."

Burress was not at home during the search by Totowa police, the NYPD and officials from the Manhattan district attorney's office. His wife was there, police said. Brafman said his client was out of town but did not elaborate.

The New York Post reported that authorities discovered a suitcase full of money, but police said that was unsubstantiated.



Burress

Burress accidentally shot himself in the right thigh at the Latin Quarter nightclub on Nov. 29 when he fumbled with an unlicensed handgun tucked into the waistband of his sweat pants. He checked himself into New York-Cornell Hospital and later turned himself in to police.

The Giants suspended Burress for the rest of the season and also withheld $1 million owed to him as part of his signing bonus.

Burress is due back in court March 31 and faces up to 3 years in prison on each count.

Burress also was sued last week in Florida's Broward County Circuit Court for rear-ending a woman in May while driving his Mercedes-Benz, worth nearly $140,000.

According to a document provided by the woman's attorney, his car insurance had lapsed three days before the crash. A letter from the insurance company Allstate says Burress neglected to pay his premiums.

What a jackass, millions of dollars a year...doesn't pay his insurance. Kick him out of the NFL.

and that is what is sad. there are decent players in the league that follow the rules and does great things with their wealth and fame, but you very seldom hear about those. its always the ones that are in trouble. maybe the NFL should come up with a new program to promote the good the players do and maybe that will help 'change' the image of the NFL, like goodell wants.

I would love to add Pacman Jones to that list (and several other players as well.)

Yeah, but the cops don't look at it that way. Guy can't play if he's in jail for a year or two. If they're still serious about that, anyway.

Anyway, LOL @ dumbass.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the weapons are registered

You have to register a rifle in NY?

Jackbooted stormtroopers, it's none of their business what guns he has in his house.

I'm pretty sure you have to register all weapons (pistols, rifles shotguns) in most states in the US...if not all of them.

I know I had to have my weapons registered when I was stationed in WV...and the same goes for here in OH.

Wrong! Not in my country - especially not in FL.
