Trouble Continues for Giants Receiver Burress

Published April 6, 2009

Plaxico Burress, the embattled wide receiver who was recently waived by the New York Giants, hurled a slew of curses at a Miami deputy sheriff during a traffic stop two weeks ago, according to police.

An angry Burress allegedly vented at Broward County Deputy Donald Harris, "F*** you! You're going to be in a lot of trouble,” Sports Illustrated reported. “I know the sheriff personally."

Burress, who is looking at a possible 3.5-year prison term on a gun-possession charge after shooting himself in the leg at a New York City nightclub in late November, countered each of the deputy’s questions with a "F- - - you," according to the citation.

In the March 18 incident near Fort Lauderdale, Burress allegedly was speeding and veered across several lanes of traffic. The deputy said he pulled over the car because Burress was driving like "he was going to kill somebody," according to police. When Officer Harris approached, he couldn't see inside the tinted windows of Burress' SUV, so he opened a door and found the ex-Giant talking on his cell phone.

“F*** you! You can't open my f***ing door!" Burress snapped, police said. Burress then threw out the line about knowing Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti.
