Plaxico Burress: INDICTED
NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City prosecutors say a grand jury has indicted former Giants receiver Plaxico Burress on weapons charges.
The grand jury did not indict his former teammate, Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce.
Prosecutors say the indictment charges Burress, 31, with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment.
The veteran receiver shot himself in the thigh at a Manhattan nightclub in November. The gun was not licensed and no one initially called police to report the gunshot.
Burress and Pierce - who drove Burress to the hospital and took the gun to Burress's New Jersey home - both testified before the grand jury last week.
The Giants released Burress in April.
