Former Steelers WR Plaxico Burress has been indicted for failure to pay taxes

James McEvoy of The Times of Trenton is reporting that authorities indicted former Pittsburgh Steelers wide out Plaxico Burress on a pair of third-degree charges as a result of his failure to pay the outstanding $47,903 tax bill. The possible penalties include more prison time and a fine.

“Burress, 37, of Totowa, faces one count of issuing a bad check or electronic funds transfer, and one count of willful failure to pay state tax. Both are third-degree charges that carry a maximum penalty of five years in state prison and a $15,000 fine,” McEvoy writes.

This is crazy, when it rains it pour for good ole Plax.
