Plax then of course had a few drinks, which means you had a drunk guy carrying a gun around, and then things got interesting.
"[The bullet] went in and out. No bones," Chief Michael Collins, a police spokesman, said.
Burress also bizarrely told Antonio Pierce not to call a ambulance, despite the fact that he was bleeding from his leg. In fact, Burress waited a full two hours before he was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital by his wife, Tiffany, and a friend.
Burress's wife also turned away police who tried to speak with the receiver after he got back home. She apparently wouldn't open the gates to couples home in New Jersey.
Anyhow, both Burress and Pierce are facing potential criminal charges for the incident, although Pierce has said he's willing to cooperate with authorities as long as he isn't charged with anything.
I have no idea what the Giants are going to do about Plax, but man is this guy ever a mess. I still can't believe it took him two hours before he went to the hospital. And provided he doesn't get locked up for this incredibly boneheaded move, he's expected to be back in two weeks.
