Crime: Accidentally shot himself in the leg with his own gun at a nightclub in New York City and got charged with two felony counts of criminal possession of a weapon for doing it

What's worse—that Plax shot himself in the leg and injured himself badly or that he had to go to jail later because he shot himself in the leg with a gun that wasn't registered properly? That's a difficult question to answer. But either way, the former Giants wide receiver essentially ruined the prime of his career when he decided to take a gun with him to a nightclub. In a way, he's lucky that he didn't do more harm to himself. But we still can't get over the predicament that he placed himself in when he shot his own self in the leg.
