Marcus Vick Pleads Guilty to Drunk Driving

October 20, 2008

(AP) - Former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick has pleaded guilty to drunken driving and other charges.

Norfolk Commonwealth's Attorney spokeswoman Amanda Howie says Vick also was convicted Monday of eluding police and driving on the wrong side of the road.

The 24-year-old brother of former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was arrested in June after fleeing from a bicycle patrol officer who saw him and a woman involved in a dispute. Vick was stopped minutes later.

A Norfolk judge suspended a 12-month jail sentence on the DUI charge, but Vick must pay $530 in fines and lose his license for a year.

Vick was dropped from the Virginia Tech team in 2006 after a series of problems on and off the field. The Miami Dolphins released him a year later.
