Damaged Car Lands Giants’ Burress in Pennsylvania Court

Plaxico Burress is in court again. A trial is scheduled to begin Wednesday in Pennsylvania to determine how much the New York Giants wide receiver will have to pay in damages for a car he leased before it was impounded by New York City police.

Court papers say Burress leased a 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche worth more than $36,000 from a Lebanon County car dealer in exchange for promises to appear at publicity events.
But the civil complaint filed by car dealer Frederick Laurenzo says Burress never returned the car and did not show up to sign autographs. Laurenzo also says the car was seized by New York City police after Burress let someone else use it.
The complaint did not disclose the extent of the damage to the vehicle, to whom Burress loaned the vehicle or the reason police impounded it. Burress’ lawyer Matthew T. Croslis said he did not want to elaborate on the details of the case.
Croslis acknowledged Tuesday that Burress is responsible for some damage to the car, but said the jury will have to decide how much.
The star receiver who caught the game-winning pass in last year’s Super Bowl was charged with two counts of illegal weapons possession after he accidentally shot himself in the right thigh at a Manhattan nightclub on Nov. 29.
After the self-inflicted shooting, the Giants suspended Burress, 31, for the remainder of the season.
