NFL wide receiver Plaxio Burress is known for his New York Giants Super Bowl-winning touchdown in 2008, but he is also known for a much bigger incident. Burress was involved in a public shooting scandal in November 2008, where he was walking upstairs in a New York City nightclub, missed a step and accidentally shot himself in the right thigh. In court, he was convicted and spent two years in prison. Burress was later signed then dropped by the Jets and eventually signed by the Steelers.
