Restaurant owner says Marcus Vick left after the shooting

After viewing a surveillance video, authorities in Virginia now admit they are taking a new look at Michael Vick’s involvement in the last Friday’s shooting after his birthday party.

It’s fair to say that Michael’s brother Marcus Vick’s role will be examined as well.  The spokesman for the restaurant Vick threw the party at told the Daily Press that Marcus was in the restaurant settling up his bill until 2:23 A.M.  The shooting took place at 2:10 A.M. 

Frankly, we’re not sure how this new information co-exists with the Virginia Beach radio report we passed along yesterday that Marcus Vick was in some way involved in the shooting.

All we know for sure is that there are many more details to learn in a story that only seems to be picking up steam.

    Well to be fair, they do sorta look alike.

    Too bad Vicktims don’t have a back country prosecutor afraid of high profile cases on their side anymore.
    Rough estimate puts one Vicktim in jail, hopefully two.

    OK, it’s official, nobody has any idea what happened. This seems like a good thing for Marcus, since the shooting was outside of the building.
    The fact that the video tape shows Mike leaving at 2:04 and stopping in the parking lot to sign autographs and pose for pictures leads me to beleive he was in no hurry to get anywhere. If he was on his way to do something like go after Quannis Phillips, I highly doubt he would be stopping to sign autographs for fans.
    I just wish this story would go away until they start making arrests, because all of these reports seem to contradict themselves.

    “The spokesman for the restaurant Vick threw the party at…”
    Christ, how long have you been writing, Rosenthal?

    still nothing new
    i’m 180% right 50% of the time
    i’m gods gift to NJ
    Vick has never been innocent of anything
    Nothing new has come out about this
    The media is wrong, Vicks lawyer is right
    the Law System will prevail!

    i agree with birmancometh. seems like a good thing. i mean after i shoot someone i am ALWAYS worried about paying my tab.
    again who says the video has the correct time? i have a digital camera and have never set the date/time on it.
    i too wished this would go away till they make some arrests and there is some NEWS to report.

    Rosenthal & Florio a.k.a. “Butt Buddies” can only write for gossip sites because obviously the ESPN, FOX SPORTS, NFL NETWORK, YAHOO SPORTS phones are not ringing.
    HA HA HA

    Haha.. so many conflicting reports it’s fantastic. it just reinforces my stance on the media looking for HITS and not actually non-biasd reporting.
    First it was Phillips got into it with Vick and that was a motive… but then the restraunt says they never witnessed any altercation.
    Then it was Marcus left with Vick and then it went to Marcus was VERY INVOLVED in the shooting next to Michael.
    Now its Marcus was inside the club haha..
    It’s probably going to come down to the fact that people seem to IGNORE. I’m sure Phillips has problems with alot more people then Vick and an incident happened between them. Everyone just associates Michael with it because well, he’s M. Vick and people want him to fail.

  11. The Troof says: Jul 1, 2010 11:17 AM

    “Doesn’t look good”???
    Ya think?!?!?!
    But what does this imply? That Marcus Vick was somehow involved with the shooting of a guy a slapped cake out of Mike’s girlfriend’s hand. But had the wherewithall to come back into the restaurant after the shooting because he wanted to pay his dinner bill??
    At least we know he didn’t want to leave his waiter in a lurch.

  12. Marv_Sleezy says: Jul 1, 2010 11:24 AM

    The guy that got shot was running up a HUGE liquor bill. When Marcus was settling up the bill, that obviously came to light.
    The guy that got shot wouldnt pay up. So Marcus said to Mike, you better get outta here, shits about to go down……

  13. Leto_II says: Jul 1, 2010 11:24 AM

    I have a feeling the owner of da club is gonna get shot soon.

    “Frankly, we’re not sure how this new information co-exists…..”
    Yes, it is bound to get somewhat confusing when you report every little rumor in every single incident as if it were stone cold fact. TMZ has the same problem.

    What a waste of second chance.

    hahahahaha, exactly. hey Everybody, how do you feel about all these conflicting reports

    Marcus needs to take the charge, clear Mike and reap the rewards of doing so in 3 years when he gets out of jail.
    This is all so simple.

    Tick, tock, tick, tock……

    …, we’re not sure how this new information co-exists with the Virginia Beach radio report we passed along yesterday that Marcus Vick was in some way involved in the shooting.”
    The same restaurant owner claims that Vick left on 3-minutes before the shooting, whilst Vick’s lawyer has said they left 10 to 20-minutes before.
    Just a thought, but maybe the time on the restaurant’s surveillance video is 10-20 minutes fast.

    This is classic and merely the tip of the iceberg in terms of the behavior we can expect with each passing year.
    I’m sorry to say that Dan Quayle was right about family values.

    But he could avoid jail time, AND Eagles fans would probably pay Marcus a lot of money now if he could somehow pin this on Michael and get him off their team.

    Somewhere in Denver, Elvis Dumervil is laughing it up.

    that was just a typo, he meant fail again, gotta keep that 99.9% up.

  26. Mooch says: Jul 1, 2010 12:37 PM

    I would pay Quanis $500 to get Vick off this team.
    Hell, Quanis is probably a better QB than Vick at this stage, sign him outright~!

    We can put a man on the moon, do open heart surgery, cure diseases…but you just can’t fix stupid.
    Ron White said something like that

    It wasn’t the Vick boys at all. It was Colonel Mustard. In the VIP lounge. With a stripper pole.

  29. AlanSaysYo says: Jul 1, 2010 12:55 PM

    Maybe Quannis Phillips shot himself with the gun tucked in the waistband of his sweatpants.

    As someone who is from VA it really sucks that alot of our state born “athletes” have zero common sense. Allen Iverson, The Vick boys, Plaxico, and prolly unknown unless your from va Bruce Smith was habitual drunk driver. Thank god for the good ones like 2008 1st round pick Duane Brown.

  31. Bob Nelson says: Jul 1, 2010 1:46 PM

    Just because everyone is lying doesn’t mean that nobody knows what is going on.
    Isn’t lying to your parole/probation officer grounds to send him back to the happy penitentiary in Leavenworth Kansas?
    Book’em Dano!!

  32. Bob Nelson says: Jul 1, 2010 1:50 PM

    What does the restaurant charge for bullet hole damage and blood stain removal?
    Do they take Marcus Credit card information for a deposit until the cost of repairs is known?

    TO ALL VICK DEFENDERS: PLEASE HELP!!
    I’m trying to become the blond blue eyed “racist whitey” devil that you claim I am. I really am trying. I want to hate Vick for just being black. I work hard at it every day.
    But every time I try, I forget he is black because my mind is fogged with the memory of his lies about gambling and dog fighting to the FBI, the commish, the media and the fans; his airport pot smuggling; flipping off his own fans; the whole “Ron Mexico” incident; the stolen Rolex; the drug test he failed while awaiting his gambling sentencing; the fact that he never did any jail time for the dog fighting; claiming that his 6 year lifestyle of dog fighting was a “mistake”; and, of course, the dogs.
    My question to you is, since all of you are so good at it, how do I forget all of those things Vick did?
    Is it denial?
    Is it ignorance?
    Is it a little of both?
    Or is there something else I’m missing?
    Thanks in advance!
