Plaxico Burress

Footballer Burress accidentally shot himself when he tried to reach for his unregistered pistol tucked in the waist of his jeans. Authorities found out when the media reported his hospital treatment, and he turned himself in. He is currently serving a two-year prison sentence for unlawful possession of a handgun.
