Plaxico Burress Locks Up Idiot of the Year Award as Police Seize More Weapons From His Home

Dumbest man alive?

It's one thing to shoot yourself in the leg. It's another to be so completely stupid as to still have an arsenal weapons still in your house.

This guy is just beyond hope.
Police yesterday seized a small cache of weapons and ammo from the Totowa, NJ, home of troubled Giants star Plaxico Burress, possibly setting up the suspended grid star for more legal trouble, law-enforcement sources said.

If the guns are unlicensed, the embattled wide receiver could face additional charges in New Jersey on top of the felony gun-possession charges he was slapped with after shooting himself in the leg at a Manhattan nightclub last month.

Burress was not at home when the search warrant was executed by Totowa police, the NYPD and officials from the Manhattan DA's Office yesterday morning - although his wife was home, sources said.

Seized in the raid were one 9 mm handgun, a rifle and ammo for three additional guns - a .380, a .45 and a .40, which is the caliber of gun with which he accidentally shot himself in the leg.

Cops also took black, bloodied jeans from his bedroom, as well as sneakers, which will be tested by Manhattan authorities as potential evidence in the nightclub shooting case, sources said.

Also found in the execution of the search warrant - but not seized, since it was unconnected to any criminal allegations - was a suitcase full of money, sources said.
Hmm. I wonder where he was headed with that suitcase full of cash?

This comes on the heels of news he was involved in an auto accident in Florida last summer while uninsured.

What a dope.
Alise Smith, 27, of Miami, says the Giants wide receiver rear-ended her on Florida's Turnpike in Tamarac in May. Smith's civil lawsuit filed in Broward Circuit Court seeks more than $15,000 for medical bills, lost wages and damage to her car.

"Ms. Smith, who wearing a seatbelt, was rear-ended by Mr. Burress, who failed to maintain a safe braking distance, maintain a proper lookout or to exercise reasonable care," Gregory Dell, Smith's attorney, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "All of this was the cause of this accident and Ms. Smith's resulting injuries."

Dell also provided a document that shows Burress had not paid his premiums to Allstate and that the insurance on his Mercedes Benz had expired three days before the accident.
