Possible Vick Involvement In Phoenix Dogfighting?

July 26, 2007

The sheriff in Phoenix says that Michael Vick is a person of interest in their investigation into his possible involvement in dog fighting operations in Arizona.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio told a Phoenix radio station that the Atlanta Falcons quarterback is a "person of interest regarding pit bull fighting," but adds that he's not "talking about a case."

Arpaio says Vick's name has been "very familiar" to his office since "a while back."

Vick is due in federal court Thursday afternoon in Richmond. The NFL star and Newport News native is to appear at a bond hearing and enter a plea on federal dogfighting charges. Prosecutors allege he and three others ran a dogfighting operation on Vick's property in Surry County, Virginia.
