Plaxico Burress began his two year prison sentence for weapons possession on yesterday. His first stop was Rikers Island, where his reception was a little less than warm.
Plaxico Burress got a zero’s welcome behind bars at Rikers Island, including taunts of “a – – hole!” and “The Giants suck!” according to jail guards.
“He was depressed,” said one guard from Rikers, where the former Giants superstar spent his first-ever night behind bars. “He was trying to keep to himself, but everyone was yelling at him.”
“These people got nothing,” a second guard explained of the taunts. “What else are they gonna do?”
Hold your head, Plax.
