Plaxico Burress’ home to be auctioned

Plaxico Burress

Judge H. Thomas Padrick Jr. ordered Monday that Plaxico Burress’ home be put on the auction block to satisfy the lien put on it as a result of a traffic accident that Burress was involved in, according to court documents emailed to USA TODAY Sports by James Dunn, the lawyer for the plaintiff in the suit.

Burress owes $159,000 for injuries caused in the 2008 accident. The property has had a sale advertisement in the local newspaper five times, but no takers.

Per Mike Garafalo, USA Today: ‘Per Padrick’s order, the property is valued at $460,000. Burress owes $159,000 to a woman who claims Burress caused her to suffer neck and back injuries when he rear-ended her nearly five years ago. Burress was a member of the New York Giants at the time and, six months later, accidentally shot himself in the leg in a Manhattan night club.’
