Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress was led away in handcuffs after spending five hours in police custody on Monday.
Burress surrendered himself to New York City police authorities at Manhattan's 17th precinct at 8:03 Monday morning to face criminal gun possession charges.
Wearing jeans, a black blazer and a white collared shirt, Burress did not appear to be favoring his right leg -- the one he accidentally shot at a Manhattan nightclub early Saturday morning.
He was led out in handcuffs at 1:02 p.m. and put into a police car, presumably for a ride downtown to get booked. Click here for more
Things have gone from bad to worse for the New York Football Giants. Contrary to initial reports which assumed Plaxico Burress was the only player at the Latin Quarter nightclub, many outlets are now reporting former Pro Bowl linebacker Antonio Pierce was not only present but also stashed Plaxico’s gun in a shady location currently being described as “somewhere in Jersey.”
Here are a list of other things currently found somewhere in Jersey: wiggers, guidos, abortion clinics, Giant Stadium, and Kevin Smith fans.
According to The New York Daily News, Pierce is wanted by police for questions, but he’s unavailable as the Giants are currently playing the hated Washington Redskins. At press time, the linebacker had one tackle.
Police have also revealed a third member of the Giants was present during the shooting, but this mysterious onlooker has not yet been named by anyone.
