Details of Plaxico's super smart night out are beginning to emerge. The coverup of the incident makes it really sound like it was chaotic trying to coverup the whole situation. First the club never called police and helped cleaned up. Then his group called around for 90 minutes trying to find a discreet place for him to treat the wound. Ended up at a hospital where he checked in as Harris Smith and said he was shot at Applebee's. What a busy night.
That all sounds believable enough for the hospital to not even report it to the police. That looks really stupid now since that is illegal. Eventually the Giants called the police and the rest is history. What is ironic is that his attorney represented Sean Combs when he was busted with possession of an illegal firearm. We all know that Sean Combs was acquitted. But because of how easy it was for him to get acquitted, the gun laws in New York have changed since then. Clearly they have become harsher.
Also the incident pissed off Mayor Bloomberg who believes that "It would be an outrage if we don't prosecute to the fullest extent of the law."
Does Applebee's have now a free promotion? Wear a Plaxico jersey and get a discount? Because this is some free publicity Plaxico is giving out. They shouldn't be upset that Plaxico made it sound like Applebee's is a place where you could get shot while eating your baby back ribs. They should say that the reason Plaxico was shot was cause he didn't pay the bill. That'll teach a lesson for those future customers who might be thinking about running out on the bill.
