Plaxico Burress has obviously just given up on obeying any authority figure ever. Just days after the Giants finally dumped him, comes words of another run-in with police that did not end happily for anyone.
Burress was pulled over for speeding and cutting through traffic on I-95 in Florida back on March 18th. When the officer approached his car, Burress was talking on his cellphone and then flew off the handle when the officer opened his car door to get a better look inside.
"F- - - you! You're going to be in a lot of trouble. I know the sheriff personally," the receiver raged at Broward County Deputy Sheriff Donald Harris during the March 18 traffic stop, police said.
The embattled gridder (right) ... followed every question and command with a "F- - - you," according to the citation.
That's nice. (Oh, and the sheriff claims he they've never met. Of course.) Keep in mind this happened while the guy is still awaiting trail on a gun possession charge that will likely send him to prison—and two weeks after he got pulled over on a completely separate incident where he "was slapped with four violations for driving 60 mph in a 45-mph zone, improper tags, improper lane change and improper window tinting." Does he just figure, "I'm going to jail anyway, I might as well earn it?"
There's no way to know for sure if these incidents had anything to do with the Giants decision to finally cut and run last week, but they certainly couldn't have helped. It seems he's hanging by a very thin thread.
