Found February 18, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Da’Quan Bowers has been charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon on the second degree after carrying a loaaded gun into LaGuardia Airport in Queens, New York.  These charges happen to be the same charges that sent former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress to prison back in 2008.  The charge carries minimum sentence of 3 1/2 years in jail. Of course Burress’ gun accidentally went off in a New York City nightclub and he ended up accepting a plea deal later on that landed him in prison for 20 months. The Bucs and the NFL have commented on the situation. The Buccaneers released a statement reading: “We are aware of the situation and are gathering information. We will withhold comment until we know all the facts.” The NFL will also review the matter. Said league spokesman Greg Aiello: “It will be reviewed under our league policies.”   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function(...
