In 2009, New York Giants NFL wide receiver, Plaxico Burress, shot himself in the thigh with a loaded and unregistered gun at a Manhattan nightclub.

To add insult to injury, he was sentenced to 21 months in a medium security prison because of the incident and subsequent “cover up” scandal.

While incarcerated, the NFL star had a $3.3 million foreclosure lawsuit filed against him and his wife.  According to Broward County court records, he was served Jan. 26, 2010.  The home, in Light House Point, Fla., includes 6,872-square-feet with five bedrooms and six bathrooms.  The original purchase price was about $4 million in 2005.

Since the announcement of the foreclosure, the Burress family has saved their South Florida residence.

While in the 12×12 prison cell, Burress had a few minor infractions.  Reports say that he had misled the corrections officer to make a phone call, exchanged sneakers with another inmate and possessed an extra pillow.  The report also states that his room was filthy with unopened bags of food and dirty clothes on the floor.

Before heading to the airport yesterday, Burress stopped at a luxury hotel where his family was staying.  He was greeted by his wife, kissed his daughter and wrapped his arms around his son.   When they arrived to the South Florida home, a banner that read, “Welcome Home” was in the driveway.

Burress yelled for the family and dog and said, “I’m doing good.”

Plaxico Burress May Have Shot Himself Again

The NFL wide receiver that is known more for physically shooting himself in the leg rather than winning a Super Bowl may not have a home anymore. Plaxico Burress, a former New Yrok Giants wide receiver, was shot with a $3 million dollar lawsuit on his Lighthouse Point, FL home.

Burresses $4 million dollar home he bought in 2005 was his primary residence. The foreclosure was filed in January by Deutsche Bank National Trust Co. There is no word on what the jailed ex-football player plans on doing.

Plaxico Burress was thrown in jail in 2009 after getting convicted with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon. This was after he lost control of a gun he had in his pants in a Manhattan nightclub. The gun fell down his pants, shooting himself in the thigh. Lets just end this post right there….
