Super Bowl to Cell Block



So you want to be a gangsta? Want to “walk into the club packin heat” ??? ---

Now you can hang out with actual gangsters for a year or so.

Plaxico Burress, ex NY Giants receiver was indicted on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment. Each criminal possession carries a 3 year minimum sentence, and the reckless endangerment comes with a mandatory minimum of 1 year in jail.

Burress accidentally shot himself at a Manhattan nightclub in November. The gun was not licensed and “Plax” has teammate Antonio Pierce drive him to the hospital.

The case will probably not go to court but even with a plea deal, the man who caught the game winning TD in the Super Bowl in February of 2008, will most likely spend at least a year in prison.

Still feel all gangsta?
