Michael Vick’s brother charged with driving high



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Marcus Vick, a former college football star and younger brother of former Falcons player Michael Vick, was arrested and charged with driving while high on marijuana on Bethelview Road near Ga. 400.

About 2 a.m. Monday, Dec. 30, Forsyth County deputy spotted a black in color Lexus LX570 driving south on Bethelview Road north of Ga. Highway 9 with an expired car registration from August 2013.

The driver, Marcus Deon Vick, 29, who lives off Bethelview Road in Cumming, is the younger brother of Michael Vick, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and former Atlanta Falcons quarterback.

Marcus, a former Virginia Tech college football player, was pulled over.

The deputy said in the report that Marcus did not have a Ga. driver’s license and smelled of marijuana. When asked, Marcus allegedly admitted to having smoked earlier in the night.

There was about $1,000 in cash folded in different bundles in Marcus’ front pocket. Marcus said he is self-employed and works with sports marketing and memorabilia, according to the incident report.

During the inventory of the car, his 31-year-old male passenger had a small bag with about $6,000 in cash. Marcus’ girlfriend later picked up the car.

There were no drugs in the car.

Marcus was taken to Northside Hospital Forsyth where a nurse administered a blood test and submitted to Georgia Bureau of Investigation for analysis. He was charged with driving under the influence of drugs, driving with an expired tag and driving without a license. All three are misdemeanors. He was booked at Forsyth County Detention Center and his bond was $4,130.
