Per NY Post:
Details of the hectic hours Burress spent trying to conceal his bone-headed blunder emerged as he said he would surrender to the NYPD today. Detectives last night seized the .40-caliber gun from his New Jersey home.
His web of deceit included:
* Taking his gun from the Midtown club Latin Quarter, where workers never called authorities and even cleaned up afterward.
* Spending about 90 minutes making frantic calls to figure out where his wound could be discreetly treated.
* Getting special treatment at New York-Cornell Hospital, where he gave his name as Harris Smith, saying he’d been shot at an Applebee’s restaurant. Nonetheless, hospital workers recognized him as Plaxico Burress, sources said, and the gunshot was not reported, as required by law.
Police found the gun last night at the Super Bowl hero’s Totowa home, sources said, after they were told it was in his kitchen. He was not home at the time.
