New York Giants star receiver Plaxico Burress was charged with two counts of felony possession of a weapon in the second degree Monday and released on a $100,000 bond.

 

Burress, who accidentally shot himself Friday night in the right thigh at a Manhattan nightclub, did not enter a plea, though his attorney said Burress planned to plead not guilty.

 

Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Felicia Mennin ordered Burress to return March 31.

 

Defense lawyer Benjamin Brafman argued for no bail, saying: "He has 35 million reasons to come back to court" -- referring to Burress' $35 million contract with the Giants.

 

Prosecutors also released a criminal complaint that provides a witness account from the club where Burress shot himself, the Latin Quarter.

 

A witness heard a popping sound before Burress' legs began to shake. It says the person saw a bloody pistol fall out of his pant leg and land on the floor.
