Well, Plaxico tried and he has now been indicted on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment. Plaxico is looking at 3 1/2 to 10 years in prison and if that isn't bad enough, he'll have to meet with the Commish also for at least a 4 game suspension. The best part of this story is that Antonio Pierce, Plax's former teammate and his wing man the night of the incident, was not charged at all. Now it's all up to Plax's defense team to try and get him less than the 3 1/2 years, but that'll be an uphill battle.
What did we learn from this story?
1) If you need a gun for protection to go to the club, DON'T GO. You got enough loot to bring the party to you. Hire some security, do something different.
2) If you are driving and your boy has a gun and shoots himself in the leg, leave him where he lands. Make sure he's not hurt too bad, but leave him there and call the police. Antonio Pierce was thisclose to going to jail and being suspended for this foolishness.
He basically had to admit to the crime in his testimony, so going to trial really isn't an option. The New York politicians want blood/jail time and Plax really has no recourse. There goes his career. What's your take?
