Plaxico Burress is finally breaking his silence. On Tuesday night, Plax will appear on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel to talk about a number of things, including his return to the NFL and his time at the Oneida Correctional Facility. But, the most interesting part of the interview occurs when Plax rehashes exactly what went down at the Latin Quarter back in November 2008 when he accidentally shot himself in the leg.
"I had a drink in my left hand," Burress says. "I'm just walking up the stairs. And, you know, it was dark. And I kind of, you know, missed a step. That's when I felt my gun...started to slide. I went to grab it...to stop it from falling. Pow. I knew it had went off. I saw the fire, like, come through my jeans...I took a couple more steps and my jeans were, like—my jeans were wet. And I looked down. I had some Chuck Taylors on and they were—the white was all red. I'm in trouble."
Yeah, Plax. You can say that again. The interview airs tomorrow night at 10PM. [via New York Post]
