The New York City hospital that treated New York Giantswide receiver Plaxico Burress‘ gunshot wound failed to report the incident to authorities per hospital policies, the New York Times is reporting.

However, a closer examination of the hospital policy clearly shows an exception for making a report if 1.) the shooter is a celebrity, 2.) the victim is a celebrity, 3.) the shooter and the victim are the same celebrity, and 4.) the celebrity signs at least three autographs for hospital staff.
