Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress, who appears to be in a heap of trouble after shooting himself with an unlicensed handgun at a nightclub yesterday, will apparently turn himself into authorities and plead not guilty to charges tomorrow. Word of this came from Burress's new layer, Benjamin Brafman, the same man who represented and helped acquit Diddy (several identities ago when he was Puff Daddy) after he was charged with having an unlicensed weapon at a club in 1999. Giants owner John Mara told reporters that the league and team officials met with players before the season to discuss the complications of owning firearms. Mara said, “Players, for whatever reason, feel the need to carry guns. It’s not something that we’re particularly pleased about, but that is the choice that they make."
