    Giants' Burress shoots himself accidentally at NYC club

    Plaxico Burress was hospitalized last night after a loaded gun he was carrying accidentally fired, causing injuries to his leg that are not life-threatening, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

    The incident is believed to have occurred at a club in New York City, where Burress was reportedly with several teammates, the source said. Earlier on Friday Burress had been declared out of Sunday's game against the Redskins in Washington with a hamstring injury.

    The Giants have acknowledged the shooting and are expected to release a statement shortly.

    In September, Burress was fined one week's salary -- $117,500 -- and suspended for two weeks (one of them the bye week) after missing a team meeting. He was also fined $45,000 by the NFL for his actions during and after a game against the 49ers in which he questioned the officiating and threw a ball into the stands following a touchdown.

    During the summer, police were summoned to Burress' New Jersey home twice for domestic disputes. On June 2 his wife, Tiffany, called police and claimed that during an argument Burress had grabbed her while Burress said he was slapped in the face by is wife. No charges were filed, but a temporary restraining order was granted and later dismissed. On Aug. 19, Tiffany Burress again called police after the two argued at a night club and Burress arrived home late and began playing loud music. She was granted another restraining order that was dismissed by the state court.

    Burress has a concealed weapon permit from the state of Florida that expired in May 2008. It is unclear if the permit was renewed; such a license can be renewed up to six months beyond the expiration date in accordance with section 790.06(11)(a) of Florida Statutes.

    However, the state of New York and New Jersey do not recognize permits from Florida, so Burress could be charged in the incident.

    Burress signed a five-year, $35-million contract prior to the Giants' opening game against the Redskins on Sept. 4.
    Great, more ammo for the anti-CCWers. He should've tried to get a NYC and NJ permit, he has the money to buy his way into it. Did this guy think his FL permit was good in NY?
