Giants receiver Smith robbed at gunpoint outside home

New York Giants second-year receiver Steve Smith was robbed at gunpoint in the early hours of Nov. 25 after arriving home, according to Clifton, N.J., police.

Smith had just returned to his townhouse in a chauffeur-driven car when he was approached from behind by man who held a gun to Smith's head, Clifton police Capt. Robert Rowan said.

"He said to him, 'Give me everything you got,' and Mr. Smith turned over his jewelry and money and cell phone," Rowan said Tuesday.

The man left the scene and is still being sought, Rowan said. It was unclear if Smith's driver was at the townhouse during the holdup.

The robbery was first reported Sunday by NBC's Tiki Barber, a former Giants running back.

NFL security has been informed of the incident, league spokesman Greg Aiello said, according to Newsday. "We're aware of the situation," he said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

And people wonder why Burress had a gun. Although, he definitely should have had the safety on and a permit for it.

This is too bad for Smith. Hope he didn't have much valuable stuff on him taken away.

Plax is a different story, and I'm all for hand gun ownership as long as it's carried in the hands of the right people and people that safely know how to carry and fire a gun.
Any idiot that carries a loaded weapon into a bar; one who wears thousands of dollars in jewelry; one who crosses state line with a firearm; and one who was in trouble with the law less than 6 months ago is just asking for trouble and deserves what he gets. How can he even have the nerve to plead not guilty?
The bouncers that let him through the door are just as big of idiots.
