Shooting himself in the thigh by accident just two weeks ago didn’t stop Giants receiver Plaxico Burress from attending a charity fundraiser for the homeless at a New York City nightclub Friday night. Burress showed up at Kevin Powell’s 8th Annual Holiday Party and Clothing Drive at the Madison nightclub around 8:45 p.m. on Friday with his wife, Tiffany, and son, Elijah.
As expected, he didn’t talk at all about the team suspending him and didn’t comment on the shooting which took place back on Friday, November 29th back at the Latin Quarter nightclub that led to criminal possession of a weapon charge.
“I’m just here to support this event, it’s a great event, and I thought it’d be a great chance to get my wife out, and my son out, and support such a great event where it helps kids, homeless kids,” Burress said in a transcript provided by WNBC-TV of New York City. “This is a wonderful thing for us to come out and be able to help people and we can lend a helping hand. I have a child, I have a son, I couldn’t imagine him being in that situation, so that’s why I brought him also.”
Burress pleaded not guilty to the weapons charge and will be back in court on March 31st. He was released from jail on $100,000 bail.
