Here is the latest on Plaxico, Antonio Pierce, and the NFL.
Attorney Benjamin Brafman in an email to AP says today his client Burress will turn himself in Monday and enter a plea of not guilty to unstated weapons charge(s).
That case stems from the New York City nightclub incidence Friday first broke here on LALATE NEWS. Inside an area nightclub called Latin Quarter Burress reportedly shot himself with a gun inside his pants.
The injury was specifically to his thigh.
As broke earlier today, Burress did not have a license to carry a concealed weapon in the state of New York claims reports.
Since then, Thomas King, the president of the New York Rifle and Pistol Association, tells the New York Post: “New York has the most restrictive pistol-licensing system in the United States. It recognizes absolutely no out-of-state permits. An out-of-stater never has the authority to carry”.
And how about Antonio Pierce?
“Pierce’s attorney was in discussions with the police to attempt to prevent Pierce from being charged for his role in the incident, according to the Daily News report” reports the Washington Post Sunday. “The Daily News reported that Pierce took the gun and put it somewhere in New Jersey after the shooting.”
And what about suspension for Burress? No suspension for Burress as of Sunday. But the Washington Post makes clear the language of the NFL’s gun policy. The policy includes the following language:
“If you violate this policy on guns and other weapons, you are subject to discipline, including suspension from playing. And if you violate a public law covering weapons–for example, possession of an unlicensed firearm–you are not only subject to discipline, including suspension from playing, but also subject to criminal prosecution.”
No further comment from Burress or police as of Sunday.
