Warrant issued for Marcus Vick after he fails to report to jail

Marcus Vick is in trouble with the law again.

Vick, who like his brother Michael Vick was a Virginia Tech quarterback, but unlike Michael was unsuccessful in the NFL (going undrafted and playing just one game for the Dolphins), had an arrest warrant issued this morning after he failed to turn himself in at the Newport News City Jail, the Daily Press reports.

Last week a judge sentenced Marcus Vick to 10 days in jail for contempt of court because he twice failed to appear to answer to a charge of driving on a suspended license. Vick was supposed to turn himself in by 5 p.m. on Monday to begin serving his jail time, but he didn’t show up.

In addition to multiple offenses of driving on a suspended license and multiple offenses of failure to appear in court on those charges, Marcus Vick has had a 2006 conviction for disorderly conduct and a 2009 conviction for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. In 2008 he was charged with driving under the influence and eluding police.

    We’re supposed to care about an NFL player’s brother having a warrant out for his arrest? What? An NFL news site is posting about a guy who played in ONE NFL game years ago? Really?

  2. wetpaperbag3 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:40 PM

    And this is a story because? How ’bout stories about ACTUAL NFL players?…not coulda shoulda woulda has-beens.

  3. contract says: Feb 28, 2012 3:40 PM

    What’s the point of releasing him after 10 days, if the police is just going to have to pick him up again and again?

    Throw away the key.

  4. tommyf15 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:40 PM

    Here come the posts where people somehow slam MICHAEL Vick over this.

  5. couchfandotcom says: Feb 28, 2012 3:42 PM

    No-Show for 10 day sentence? Damn, it’s 5 if you’re “well-behaved”…the mole hill just became a mountain!

  6. coleman121280 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:43 PM

    the bengals should sign him…

  7. ferdfteenthousand says: Feb 28, 2012 3:43 PM

    He’s always been known as more elusive…am I right?

  8. chc4 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:43 PM

    Is anyone surprised? Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

  9. ernst90 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:44 PM

    Sounds like a vick!

  10. vegaskid21 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:44 PM

    I was wondering what happened to this guy.

  11. godofwine330 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:44 PM

    All that talent gone to waste. His brother almost wasted his, too. I’m doing my best not to waste mine, I am writing character descriptions for my book right now.

    So he either someone who:

    1. Thinks he is to important to follow the rules.
    2. Has no disregard for the rules.
    3. Is to stupid to follow the rules.

    I am going with number 3

  13. upperdecker19 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:45 PM

    A warrant should be issued for the person that trusted him to turn himself in.

  14. roadwash says: Feb 28, 2012 3:45 PM

    NO WAY!…..I’m totally shocked by this.

  15. thehatefulnerd says: Feb 28, 2012 3:45 PM

  17. dino2997 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:46 PM

    “but unlike Michael was unsuccessful in the NFL”

    Has Michael Vick been deemed a success? I think the jury is still out on that.

  18. pacificamjr says: Feb 28, 2012 3:46 PM

    poor guy, thats an awfully large shadow to have to live under…

  19. whitecastleisafoodgroup says: Feb 28, 2012 3:47 PM

    So since he’s a brother of an NFL Player does this qualify has a Half a Turd?

  20. m1mplax39 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:47 PM

    maybe it is part of his culture as well

    His older brother success failed him as a person and a player. It spoiled him with the unlimited access to Vicks cars and money. On the field he tried to be his brother and wasn’t. Those genes went to the older brother. Momma has t eo be proud of the job she did. Two sons going to prison ande neither has a college degre

    What a nice family

  27. trbowman says: Feb 28, 2012 3:53 PM

    I hope for his sake he’s as good a con artist as his big brother is.

  28. mymanmccoy says: Feb 28, 2012 3:53 PM

    I’m sure his parents (mom) must be proud!

  29. wawa33 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:53 PM

    Brenda Vick must be very proud.

  30. cubancigar10 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:53 PM

    What a waste of athleticism. He could have been something but lacked focus and desire. Too bad!!!

  31. lilrob10201 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:53 PM

    I always liked Mike but Marcus is a real POS.He could have been better then his brother but took the wrong path.Now he is a waste of talent.

  32. mortimeryoung says: Feb 28, 2012 3:54 PM

    Hopefully he’ll have some time to sit around and reminisce about his Most Unsportsmanlike trophies from college.

    turd list goes back to 0 days again. ha. A shame based family is great huh?(why else would he and his dogkiller brother do this behavior? the fun of it?)

  38. tom-a-hawk says: Feb 28, 2012 3:57 PM

    the Vick parents must be so proud of their boys…

  39. huskersrock1 says: Feb 28, 2012 3:57 PM

    This guy is going to end up spending years in prison before he is done.

  40. braven4evr says: Feb 28, 2012 3:59 PM

    there’s no need in being dumb unless, you’re real dumb….you marcus vick are real DUMB!
    Damn it’s just ten days… well, at least it was! Not reporting in some states is considered to be escape!!!!

  41. Roy Pumphrey says: Feb 28, 2012 3:59 PM

    First and foremost, Marcus had a lottery ticket and he burned it. But it is true a # of V Tech football players have issues with the law.

    Now it’s also true other universities have that same issue. I’m just hopeful that these places of higher learning are infact trying to teach more than football.

    Why would you send your kid to a place where arrest are so common?

  42. phillychzstk2012 says: Feb 28, 2012 4:00 PM

    what a turd.

  43. nflofficeadmin says: Feb 28, 2012 4:00 PM

    Is this family scum? Thumbs up for yes, thumbs down for I don’t know.

  44. glac1 says: Feb 28, 2012 4:01 PM

    sooooo….it runs in the family! Gentlemen….it’s time to grow up, take that next step and blend in with the rest of society.

    Once a Vick, always a Vick.

  46. uwsptke says: Feb 28, 2012 4:03 PM

    Yeah, the Law is funny like that. Did he not think they were serious?

  47. thejuddstir says: Feb 28, 2012 4:03 PM

    Keep giving the “kid” break after break, maybe after he finally hurts someone he’ll spend some time in jail.

  48. jkearse2005 says: Feb 28, 2012 4:03 PM

    Well I’m not suprised…

  49. golonger says: Feb 28, 2012 4:03 PM

    …birds of a feather, flock together

  50. emac40 says: Feb 28, 2012 4:04 PM

    All of the entitlement of the “pre-prison” Michael with none of the game. Very nice…

  51. myspaceyourface says: Feb 28, 2012 4:04 PM

    1 game with the Dolphins “warrants” a picture of him in that uniform. . . Come on PFT, you can do better than that.

  52. scrapingthefloorioforstorios says: Feb 28, 2012 4:05 PM

    great judgement runs in the family. them vicks are no mannings..

  53. hatesycophants says: Feb 28, 2012 4:05 PM

    Yeah but, no one gives a shift about Marcus Vick. Also, save one, the charges don’t amount to a hill of beans.

    Find something else to do, Smith.

  54. cardiovascularendurance says: Feb 28, 2012 4:06 PM

    At least he’s keeping his name in the headlines…

  55. thegonz13 says: Feb 28, 2012 4:07 PM

    If he wasn’t Michael Vick’s brother, this wouldn’t even be news.

  56. joeymichaelsstudios says: Feb 28, 2012 4:09 PM

    Mike Vick: Don’t come here.

  57. jacunn2000 says: Feb 28, 2012 4:10 PM

    NO. WAY. These poor kids, the police obviously have something against the Vick brothers…

  58. djstat says: Feb 28, 2012 4:18 PM

    Well maybe if you put him in the clink for a year he will learn his lesson…10 days…means a vacation for him to go visit his boys.

  59. granadafan says: Feb 28, 2012 4:19 PM

    People like Marcus are completely useless to society and just cost the taxpayers money. The Vicks must be really proud of the way they raised their children. If Michael and Marcus were’t blessed with genetic physical attributes, their pea-sized brains would land them in jail again and again as drains on society.

  60. hermey09 says: Feb 28, 2012 4:20 PM

    Stay hot, Marcus!!!

  61. thingamajig says: Feb 28, 2012 4:22 PM

    I heard he’s at the pound checking out Pit Bulls available for adoption.

  62. babyhorsemorgan says: Feb 28, 2012 4:22 PM

    Marcus ran away from home again.

  63. haileli says: Feb 28, 2012 4:25 PM

    What?!?! He didn’t show up for a hearing for a suspended sentence? That offense is a slap on the wrist. And then he did it again. And then he didn’t show up for his relatively tame 10 day prison sentence? I hope whatever you were doing those days was worth the insanely disproportional punishment you receive for a minor infraction. You deserve it. Unbelievable.

  64. ilovefoolsball says: Feb 28, 2012 4:30 PM

    I bet he has that picture framed in his home, or his parent’s home, where ever he sleeps.

  65. pacific123ocean says: Feb 28, 2012 4:31 PM

    I know I am an idiot for clicking and opening this story.

    But, I just have to say, who cares about Marcus Vick?

  66. mercurialcj says: Feb 28, 2012 4:35 PM

    Millions of people would kill to have his athletic ability, and he’s throwing it all away. Without his football talent, he’s just another useless convict in and out of prison. Keep it up Marcus, you’re about to ruin ANY chance you have at playing football.

  67. n2thaizzo says: Feb 28, 2012 4:35 PM

    Yall are talking like the man committed murder or something. It was driving on a suspended license. Shouldn’t even be jail time for that BS. #whackcriminaljusticesystem

  68. waccoforflacco says: Feb 28, 2012 4:40 PM

    These judges are the problem. Give this slug five years and NO PAROLE. Ten days is a picnic.

  69. rob0527 says: Feb 28, 2012 4:41 PM

    Totally agree with granadafan, if his brother wasn’t famous he wouldn’t even have had choice to turn himself in. Once sentence came down he would have gone right then and there, just like everybody else.

  70. njbucsfan says: Feb 28, 2012 4:45 PM

    He’s on the run as Ron Mexico

  71. steeelfann says: Feb 28, 2012 4:49 PM

    This is the new generation below: No a big deal, not their fault, call everyone a hater, call them prejudiced, call the biased. Too many people in the NEW SCHOOL don’t take responsibility for anything, are not accountable and waste the time and money of others who do the right thing. What if everyone is society just acted like the esteemed Marcus Vick? Nobody goes to court, nobody pays fines, nobody obeys laws. Great society you would have. Get a grip. Grow up.

    Does that mean we may actually get an end to the Saga of Westeros sometime this decade, Mr. Martin?

    Nice family! Maybe Andy Reid can rehab Marcus along with Michael and his two sons.

    Cooper Manning has a wife and three kids and part ownership of an energy firm that deals with oil and gas stocks.

    I mean, since we’re talking about the non-football playing brothers of NFL quarterbacks.

  82. catquick says: Feb 29, 2012 1:54 AM

    Its no wonder he is avoiding being in the “doghouse”. After all, the only view he’s ever had of it is his brothers.

    The Vicks, keeping the family tradition of criminal elements alive.

  87. jmt8251 says: Feb 29, 2012 6:00 PM

    It is sad that Marcus can’t stay out of trouble because he has no reason to be in trouble all the time, he has been spoiled since he was 16, but it is also sad that you so-called perfect people think that they have the right to talk about his family, because Michael is a football player Profootball talk hates Mike so of course they write about his brother, where were they when Brett Favre sister was arrested for the 4th time for Meth possession and also selling it? Where are the article about other white players family members being in trouble? No they don’t wirte about that. The give excuse for Sandusky, Paterno and other sickos who have gotten away with some sick things, but that is okay as long as you love a dog you can be a degenerate> You got murders out there and not one thing is said about them. Well keep hiding behind a user name and throwing stones while you are living with all kinds of issues in your family. It won’t change what you and your family are no matter what you say about Marcus, you just aren’t relevant enough for anyone to care about your sick behavior. Clean your own mess up and maybe we won’t have so many trailer trash shooting people they don’t no for no reason. Raise your hateful kids with love and forgiveness then maybe this world can change. So all you saints including Michael Smith who wrote this enjoy hiding behind your useless life that nobody cares about what is going on in your sick family.

    ok’ok, i agree the guy does,nt know when to quit and he does’nt know how fortunate he is either , but show me a person from a wealthy family and talented family who does?
