Marcus Vick Arrested For DUI And Eluding Police

NORFOLK, Va. — Former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick was arrested early Friday and charged with driving under the influence and eluding police.

Vick, the brother of former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, signed as a free agent receiver with the Miami Dolphins after a troubled career at Virginia Tech. He was released by the Dolphins in 2007.

Police said a uniformed bicycle patrol officer observed Vick and a female involved in an altercation in a car around 2 a.m. The officer asked if his assistance was needed, then asked Vick for his driver's license. Police say Vick then sped away, but was stopped minutes later.

Vick, 24, failed a field sobriety test and was charged with DUI, misdemeanor eluding police, reckless driving, driving on the wrong side of the road and driving on a suspended license. The passenger, Delicia Cordon of Miami, Fla., was charged with being drunk in public.

Vick was released from jail at 6 a.m. Friday on $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Monday, said Maj. Mike O'Toole of the Norfolk Sheriff's Office.

Vick was kicked off the Virginia Tech team after repeated brushes with the law and misbehavior on and off the field. In March 2006, following his junior year, Vick's guilty plea to traffic violations in Hampton brought the end of his college career because Virginia Tech had him under a zero tolerance policy.
