TSA ALLEGES VICK HAD BOTTLE WITH SECRET COMPARTMENT
NBC 6 in South Florida reports that Falcons running back Michael Vick allegedly had in his possession on Wednesday at Miami International Airport a water bottle with a secret compartment. The compartment reportedly "contained a small amount of a dark particulate and officials describe a pungent aroma closely associated with marijuana."
Vick has not been arrested and the substance is being analyzed by police.
Earlier tonight, we received a tip regarding the incident, and we posted a short blurb without naming Vick. A few minutes later, however, we got nervous about the accuracy of the tip and we pulled the story down.
CBS 4 in Miami also has a story regarding the incident.
And CBS 46 in Atlanta has the first word on the matter from the Falcons, who released the following statement: "We understand there have been reports allegedly involving Michael Vick that took place at the Miami International Airport earlier today. We plan to look into the matter and discuss it with Michael before having any further comment."
There's also a more detailed account of the events in the Miami Herald.
OK so he isn't at Ricky Williams level yet. But I had heard stories in the past from some friends at VT about him and his brother. And there is no way of knowing if there has been a prior offense with the NFL.
Vick could be seriously jepordizing his future in ATL.
Get him out of Atlanta! I have had matt Schaub on my fantay roster for two years now with the hopes of a Vick trade/injury. Schaub is a much better fit for this team and would Atlanta could get some picks/players from the right team who would be interested in trading for Vick (oakland, minnesota, jacksonville, houston).
...that motherfucker is always spiked with pain.....
I think the conclusion that the end is near either way regarding this decision is false. Had the NFL prevailed, it COULD have tried to use the "we're one entity" in negotiations. But, they already do that, so no big deal.
