Buress is a special kind of stupid because he shot himself in the foot. No, we’re not speaking metaphorically because we mean this in the most literal sense. The former Giants star accidentally discharged his pistol into his leg outside a nightclub (via Sportscasting).
Things became worse for Burress because he didn’t have a license for the weapon. A New York court charged the wide receiver with a weapons violation and he spent 20 months behind bars. He also suffered an NFL suspension but that wasn’t his biggest problem. Meanwhile, the injury also affected his pace when he returned to football.
