Vick tests positive for marijuana
QB now faces stricter bail restrictions

Falcons quarterback Michael Vick tested positive for marijuana, has been confined to his Virginia residence, ordered to wear an electronic monitoring device and receive mental health counseling, according to court documents filed Wednesday.

Vick tested positive in a urine sample submitted on Sept. 13 — 17 days after entering a plea agreement in federal court on felony charges related to dogfighting. He faces up to five years in prison and will be sentenced on Dec. 10.

As part of his pretrial release, Vick agreed to "refrain from use or unlawful possession of a narcotic drug or other controlled substance."

A probation officer, Patricia Locket-Ross, petitioned Judge Henry E. Hudson to impose stricter conditions on Monday.

In court documents filed Wednesday, Hudson ordered that Vick submit to any method of testing, "for determining whether the defendant is using a prohibited substance." Such methods may be used with random frequency and include urine testing and the wearing of a sweat patch.

In other conditions ordered by the court, Vick is restricted to his Virginia residence every day from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. The home confinement will include electronic monitoring and Vick must pay for the service. The judge also ordered Vick to continue in a substance therapy program and participate in mental health counseling.

One of Vick's co-defendants in the federal case, Quanis Phillips, was taken into custody at his plea agreement hearing on Aug. 17 for admitting to the use of marijuana. He later petitioned the court to be released, but the motion was denied.

Vick was suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violating the league's player conduct policy on Aug. 27, the day he entered his federal plea agreement. The AJC has inquired to the NFL as to whether the positive drug test violates the league's substance abuse policy.

The court order comes one day after Vick was indicted by a Surry County grand jury on two state felony charges related to dogfighting. Vick is set to be arraigned Oct. 3 in the state case.

Silly asses. He was only forced to drugs because the stress and pressure the white man causes him. It's hard for the white man to deal with a black man who has money, so they bring up this utterly crazy plot to make him look bad by driving him to drugs.

Where is Rev. Al to save the day?

This is clearly a racial incident. Due to the fact that the original law against marijuana targeted Mexicans and Negroes to prevent them from ****** white women.

Judge Has Vick on Curfew After Drug Test

RICHMOND, Va. - A federal judge placed tighter restrictions on Michael Vick on Wednesday after the Atlanta Falcons quarterback tested positive for marijuana.

Because of the result, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson placed special conditions on Vick's release, including restricting him to his home between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. with electronic monitoring and ordering him to submit to random drug testing.

The urine sample was submitted Sept. 13, according to a document by a federal probation officer that was filed in U.S. District Court on Wednesday.

Vick, who has admitted bankrolling a dogfighting operation on property he owns in Surry County in his written federal plea, is scheduled for sentencing Dec. 10. He faces up to five years in prison.

Because Vick violated the conditions of his release, Hudson could take that into consideration during sentencing, said Linda Malone, a criminal procedure expert and Marshall-Wythe Foundation professor of law at the College of William and Mary.

"Every judge considers pretty seriously if they feel that the defendant has flaunted the conditions for release," Malone said.

"It's certainly not a smart thing to do."

On Tuesday, Vick also was indicted on state charges of beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs and engaging in or promoting dogfighting. Each felony is punishable by up to five years in prison.

The 27-year-old former Virginia Tech star was placed under pretrial release supervision by U.S. Magistrate Dennis Dohnal in July. The restrictions included refraining from use or unlawful possession of narcotic drugs or other controlled substances.

The random drug testing ordered Wednesday could include urine testing, the wearing of a sweat patch, a remote alcohol testing system or any form of prohibited substance screening or testing.

Hudson's order also requires Vick to participate in inpatient or outpatient substance therapy and mental health counseling, if the pretrial services officer or supervising officer deem it appropriate. Vick must pay for the treatment.

Vick's attorney, Billy Martin, also represents Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, who pleaded guilty in an airport sex sting.

During a press conference about Craig on Wednesday, Martin was asked to comment on Vick. He declined, saying only, "I'm sure that in the future we'll have something to say regarding Mr. Vick, but not now."

In January, Vick was cleared by police of any wrongdoing after his water bottle was seized by security at Miami International Airport. Police said it smelled of marijuana and had a hidden compartment that contained a "small amount of dark particulate."

Lab tests found no evidence of drugs, and Vick explained that he used the secret compartment to carry jewelry.

The federal dogfighting case began in late April when authorities conducting a drug investigation of Vick's cousin raided the property and seized dozens of dogs, most of them pit bulls, and equipment commonly associated with dogfighting.

Six weeks later, when the local investigation seemed to be dragging and a local search warrant was allowed to expire, federal agents arrived with their own warrants and started digging up dog carcasses buried days before the first raid.

Vick has admitted helping kill six to eight dogs, among other things. His three co-defendants also have pleaded guilty. One of them, Quanis Phillips, failed a drug test and was ordered jailed after his plea.

Phillips and co-defendants Tony Taylor and Purnell Peace were placed on electronic monitoring at the time of their arraignments because they had prior criminal records.

Vick had no prior criminal record, so monitoring is the next step for him, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. Another failed drug test likely would land him in jail.

This was probably strike three for him ever playing in the NFL again with one being he was into dog fighting and two being the fact he was not that good of a QB.
