PLAXICO HAD BETTER PAY HIS TICKETS
by Michael David Smith
WTAE news in Pittsburgh is reporting that next month, Pittsburgh police will start issuing arrest warrants for 37,000 people who have unpaid tickets for offenses ranging from running red lights to parking in handicapped zones to speeding.
A reader alerted us to the fact that residents who want to know if they're on the list can search for their names online. And if you go to the state web site and search "Burress" and you'll see two citations listed for a Plaxico A. Burress of Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette notes that another former Steelers receiver, Antwaan Randle El, is also on the list. As is current Steelers offensive lineman Max Starks.
The Post-Gazette couldn't reach Burress or Randle El for comment, but a Steelers spokesman said Starks was taking care of his fine. Let's hope Burress and Randle El do, too. We'd hate to have to re-set the "days without an arrest" counter for something as trivial as an unpaid traffic ticket.
