Troubled NY Giants Wide Receiver Plaxico Burress is once again in the news. 27-year-old Alise Smith has filed suite against the problematic Burress for a May 2008 accident in Tamarac, Florida where Burress’ Mercedes-Benz, valued at $140,000, rear-ended her vehicle.
Making matters worst for Burress is the fact that he did not have any insurance on his Benz at the time of the accident. According to Allstate Burress policy had lapsed due to non-payment.
Neither Burress nor his attorney would comment on the suite.
Burress made headlines in November when he accidentally shot himself in the leg while at a NY nightclub. He turned himself into police and was booked on gun possession. He faces 3 ½ years in prison if he’s found guilty at trial.
