New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress wasn’t able to play football the last few weeks because he was suspended by his own team. You see, Plax had blown off showing up for practice on a Monday and didn’t answer any of the team’s phone calls. Well, the Giants should take solace in the fact that they aren’t the only phone calls Burress has been ignoring lately.
The fine people at Khoury Alternative Claims Management have been trying to get a hold of him for a while as well. Apparently Plaxico rented a car in New Jersey and returned it with a bit of damage done to the vehicle. Damage he feels no need to pay for.
From the NEW YORK POST:
Burress returned a Suburban on June 2 to Epic Car and Truck Rental in Clifton, N.J., with scratches and dents in the bumper. He paid $996.95 for the rental but owed another $1,759 in damages. Burress dropped the car off after hours and never informed anyone of the damages.
“A lot of people do that,” said Randy Harris, president of Khoury Alternative Claims Management. “Because of the damage they just split.”
The Giants confirmed they had been contacted by Harris about the issue but refused comment.
Harris also went on to say that Plax listed Allstate as his insurance company, but when he contacted them they said they don’t have a policy for him. Harris also went on to call Burress a bum, which might be a bit unfair. He’s more of an immature baby who doesn’t think he has to be responsible for anything.
The guy just signed a contract extension worth $35 million, and he refuses to pay $1,759 for damages he caused to a car that he rented. I know the economy is in trouble right now, but I think Plax will survive either way.
