UPDATE: Harris Smith Plaxico Burress
Plaxico Burress (who gave the alias of Harris Smith when arriving to the hospital after shooting himself in the leg) was arrested on a weapons possession charge yesterday. He turned himself in to the NY 17th precinct and as led around in cuffs. The Dept. of Health is now investigating New York-Cornell Hospital for failing to report Plaxico's gun shot wound after he told them he was sot at an Applebees. The medical worker who catered to Plax has been suspended as it is the law and hospital policy to report all gun shot wounds. I hope their payoff was worth it. Meanwhile, Plax's teammate Antonio Pierce (who dropped Plax off at the hospital and jetted off) ditched his meeting with the cops yesterday. But he surely found a way to make it to a paid radio appearance. He also ran his mouth a lot after the shooting to NFL security which is putting everyone in an awkward position. Money doesnt equal smarts.
