Plaxico Burress, who famously suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound at a New York City nightclub in November, has been sued at least nine times by people who said he failed to pay a debt, damaged their car or didn’t pay his taxes since entering the league in 2000.
The New York Post has all the details, ones that paint the wide receiver in less than a flattering light. Definitely worth your time, if only for this quote:
I got a note from Plaxico saying, ‘Sorry for the inconvenience. Please inform the court that the judgment has been paid,’ Malin said. Then the check bounced.
