09:03 AM ET 04.05 | At least this time Plaxico Burress was only shooting from the lip. The pistol-packing punk fired a string of profanities at a deputy sheriff two weeks ago after he was stopped for erratic driving in Florida, police said. "-- - - you! You're going to be in a lot of trouble. I know the sheriff personally," the receiver raged at Broward County Deputy Sheriff Donald Harris during the March 18 traffic stop, police said. The embattled gridder -- who was released by the Giants on Friday and faces 3?? years in prison on a gun-possession charge after shooting himself in the leg at a Manhattan nightclub on Nov. 29 -- followed every question and command with a "-- - - you," according to the citation. It appears Burress' driving is as wild as his shooting; the ticket was his fifth driving infraction in Florida in the past month alone. In the March 18 incident near Fort Lauderdale, Burress, 31, was speeding south on I-95 in his black 2008 Toyota Sequoia at 10:30 a.m. when he crossed several lanes of traffic, cutting off vehicles to get on I-595's westbound ramp, police said. Harris pulled over the car because Burress was driving like "he was going to kill somebody," according to police. When Officer Harris approached, he couldn't see inside the tinted windows of Burress' SUV, so he opened a door and found the ex-Giant talking on his cellphone. "-- - - you! You can't open my -- - -ing door!" Burress barked, police said. That's when Burress issued his boastful threat about knowing Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti.
