Plaxico Antonio Burress
Played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants, Plaxico Buress is known more for his problems off the field than for his prowess on it. He served a two-year jail sentence for criminal possession of a gun, after carrying a concealed Glock into a club in his sweatpants and accidentally shooting himself in the leg with it.On June 6, 2011, Burress was released from prison.
In January 2009, Burress was the defendant in a civil lawsuit brought against him by a Lebanon County, Pennsylvania car dealer, who claimed that Burress was given a leased Chevrolet Avalanche in return for promises to appear at publicity events for the dealership.The dealer claimed that Burress never returned the car and never attended any publicity events; the damaged car was eventually returned after being impounded by the New York Police Department.Burress acknowledged that he was responsible for some of the damage to the car, but asked a jury to determine the amount.On January 15, 2009 the jury returned a verdict awarding only $1,700 to the dealer, who had asked for damages of up to $19,000.According to the Associated Press, Burress has been sued at least nine times since he joined the NFL in 2000
