More trouble has come to the Vick family! Marcus Vick, a former college football star and younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, was arrested for driving while high in Georgia.
Holy smoke! Like the Vick family really needed another reason to be sad this holiday season. Marcus Vick — younger brother of Michael Vick, who was benched by the NFC East champion Eagles when a younger QB proved his worth — was arrested for driving high on Dec. 30.
Marcus Vick Arrested For Driving While High
Was he upset that the Eagles clinched the NFC East while his brother was on the bench? TMZ reports that Marcus was arrested in Georgia on the morning of Dec. 30, and that cops say he was driving while high on marijuana. The 19-year-old former Texas Tech quarterback was driving a 2013 Lexus LX570 when he was stopped 2:30 AM for expired tags, and clearly he had just finished hot boxing his car because it reeked of marijuana. He was taken to a nearby station and booked at — get this — 4:20 AM.
Marcus Vick’s Troubled History
Though he’s never been arrested for running a horrific dog-fighting ring like his big bro Mikey, Marcus has been quite the troublemaker in the past. He was arrested in Virginia in 2012 for blowing off his court dates from driving on a suspended license, and was booted off the Virginia Tech football team in 2006 following due to his string of arrests and convictions, which include gun charges.
HollywoodLife.com sends thoughts and prayers to the Vick family during this difficult time.
