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.
