Lesson learned: Plaxico Burress (trying to come up with a nickname) not only is a bad shooter but also a bad driver. I am so glad this dumbf*** is no longer a Steeler. A thread starter just stating plaxico burress is worthy of being moved to the fun house because this complete _____ (seeking a word to describe how dumb he is without understating his stupidity) is a joke. 5 driving violations in the past month, hilarious!

In the March 18 incident near Fort Lauderdale, Burress, 31, was speeding south on I-95 in his black 2008 Toyota Sequoia at 10:30 a.m. when he crossed several lanes of traffic, cutting off vehicles to get on I-595's westbound ramp, police said.

Harris pulled over the car because Burress was driving like "he was going to kill somebody," according to police.

When Officer Harris approached, he couldn't see inside the tinted windows of Burress' SUV, so he opened a door and found the ex-Giant talking on his cellphone.

"(Expletive) you! You can't open my (expletive) door!" Burress barked, police said. That's when Burress issued his boastful threat about knowing Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti.

At one point, Harris asked Burress to get out of his car because of his "violent and aggressive" attitude, police said. The deputy wanted to see if the fuming, 6-foot-5 footballer was carrying a gun. Burress, who wasn't packing, complied. But he wasn't happy about it.

Eventually, Burress, who has a home in nearby Lighthouse Point, returned to his car, snarling, "You're going to hear about this by the end of your shift!"

But Burress was bluffing about his connections. The sheriff has "never met him," a police spokeswoman said.

Burress was hit with a $150 moving violation.
So I'm assuming this jackass was permitted to go back to his vehicle and simply drive off after this exchange? If it were me or any other Joe Blow that went off on a cop like that, we'd have at least spent the rest of the night in the county lockup. It's this kind of preferential treatment of pro jocks and other celebrities in this society that makes me very skeptical that he's going to serve so much as one day behind bars for the gun-possession charge.

If this is the real Burress I think it is a tribute to the Steelers organization that he was more well behaved when he played here.

No doubt.

I bet people in the organization saw this type of behavior in his future and weren't too upset about him wanting to go somewhere else to get paid.

Yeah - his head definitely wasn't in it last year. Coughlin was forced to suspend him for a couple of weeks after missing his upteenth team meeting. There was another incident or 2 when he cursed at Coughlin on the sidelines after Coughlin criticized him for penalties he committed.

If anything - the Giants organization has been patient with him for a good bit b/c 6"5 receivers with speed and command LOADS of respect from opposing DCs don't exactly grow on trees. If anything, his presence ALONE opened up that Giants run game in a big way - rarely could teams stack the box...plus he was a huge mismatch for smaller corners(i.e. Sheldon Brown, who got burned quite a bit by him).

Ultimately, I still think the Giants have a good backup plan in the works to shore up their receiver position. They'll be fine come kickoff '09.

Yeah, he only refused to come to an OTA because it was on mothers day and got charged for public intoxication a few times when he was a Steeler.

Steelers' Burress arrested for public intoxication in Virginia

It was the second time Burress has been charged on an alcohol-related offense in the past five months.

He paid a fine after he was issued a citation for carrying an open bottle of Corona beer in the Flats section of Cleveland at 1:45 a.m. Dec. 24

You actually think he's gonna get jail time? Come on...he's a talented athlete.

Wow man...this guy is on a path to self-destruction. Assuming he gets no jail time for the gun charge, he will make a bigger mistake where he really hurts or kills someone.

What an idiot.
