Former NFL WR Josh Morgan Shoots Himself & Gets Arrested
If you thought you’d never hear about another Plaxico Burress shooting incident, you thought wrong. Former San Francisco 49ers WR Josh Morgan did just that, he shot himself with his own gun and to add insult to injury, he got charged with a crime afterwards.
The man behind the trigger is 30-year-old Josh Morgan — who spent 7 seasons in the league with the 49ers, Redskins and Bears.
TMZ Sports has learned … cops in Virginia responded to a report of a man with a self-inflicted gunshot wound around 9 PM on January 31st.
We’re told Morgan claimed he was cleaning the weapon when it accidentally went off … leaving him with non-life threatening injuries.
He was hospitalized and we’re told he’ll be okay — but now he’s got a new set of problems because he’s been charged with misdemeanor reckless use of a firearm and has a court date in March.
A rep from Morgan’s camp tells TMZ Sports … “He’s fine. It was a simple accident.”
Gun safety people, apply it.
