Ex-NFL QB Marcus Vick, Brother Of Michael Vick, Charged With Drug Possession

Several news outlets report that 32-year-old Marcus Vick was arrested Saturday in Newport News and charged with one count of possession of a schedule I or II drug following a search of his apartment.

Police arrived at the scene after receiving a drug complaint. Authorities state officers smelled marijuana coming from the apartment as they approached.

Police stated Vick opened the door and allowed officers to enter. Vick and four others in the apartment were detained after police found two bags of what Vick confirmed were illegal drugs. The officer who filed the affidavit said he believed one bag contained molly, also called MDMA, and the other crack cocaine.

Court documents stated Vick was “extremely cooperative” with police when they searched his apartment.

Earlier this year, Macus Vick was charged with assaulting a police officer who was arresting him on a contempt charge in Virginia.

It remains unclear whether or not Vick has an attorney.

Vick was born in Newport News and attended Warwick High School before playing for Virginia Tech. He was signed by the Miami Dolphins in 2006, but only played one game for the team. His older brother Michael is a free agent National Football League quarterback who also played at Virginia Tech, and then went on to play for the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers.
