    New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress arrives at a police station, Monday, Dec.1, 2008, in New York.

    Blame it on the fine print.

    Four Broward County traffic tickets against former New York Giantswide receiver Plaxico Burress were dismissed after a judge ruled the citations did not include how Burress could pay or contest the fines, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

    The technicality saved Burress, who seems to treat South Florida roadways like his own personal Daytona 500, from further embarrassment in traffic court.

    During a traffic stop in March in Pompano Beach, Burress allegedly cussed out the deputy who pulled him over and told the cop he was close buddies with Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti. Lamberti later told people he has never met Burress and isn't really a Giants fan.

    Burress, who owns a home in Lighthouse Pointe, was charged with speeding, changing lanes in an unsafe manner, having improperly tinted windows and improperly displaying a car tag.

    But the Broward traffic court hasn't seen the last of Burress, who apparently has about as much luck on South Florida roads as he does with guns in the club. He still has a pending traffic ticket case for cussing out another deputy who pulled the star wideout over for cutting off drivers on the highway.

    And then, of course, there is that little felony gun case in New York that could put Burress away for five years. That case could have a plea deal at a hearing on June 15.
