According to TMZ, Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Plaxico Burress had his drivers license suspended after failing to pay a six-figure judgement to a car crash victim.
Here’s why … as TMZ previously reported, a woman named Alise Smith sued Plaxico, claiming he caused a car crash that injured her. She won, and he was ordered to pay $125,000 in damages.
According to Alise, Plax never paid (he tried appealing) … so her lawyer, James Dunn, fired off a letter to the FL DMV requesting that his license be suspended — yeah they can do that — and the DMV made it happen. To get it back Plax must pay the judgment OR challenge the DMV’s actions.
This is unfortunate for Burress since he just signed a one-year deal with the Steelers. He better get things worked out before its time for him to report to their offseason work out program.
