LEBANON, Pa. (AP) -- A Pennsylvania jury has sided with Plaxico Burress in a dispute over how much the New York Giants star should pay in damages for a car he borrowed that ended up getting impounded by New York City police.
A jury in Lebanon County civil court decided Wednesday that Burress owes $1,700 in damages, far less than the $19,000 sought by the dealer who loaned the car to Burress.
Burress declined to comment afterward and was followed by a small crowd of fans seeking autographs. Burress testified that his agent arranged for the Chevrolet Avalanche in 2005. Burress disputed that he had agreed to make personal appearances for the dealership.
New York police later impounded the truck after it was connected to a shooting incident.
