NEW YORK (AP) -Plaxico Burress has appeared in court on weapons possession charges stemming from an accidental shooting at a Manhattan nightclub.
Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Felicia Mennin set bail at $100,000 and ordered Burress to return March 31.
Defense lawyer Benjamin Brafman argued for no bail, saying: ``He has 35 million reasons to come back to court'' - referring to his $35 million contract with the Giants.
Prosecutors also released a criminal complaint that provides a witness account from the club where the New York Giants wide receiver shot himself.
A witness heard a popping sound before Burress' legs began to shake. It says the person saw a bloody pistol fall out of his pant leg and land on the floor.
If convicted, Burress could face 3 1/2 to 15 years in jail.
