Michael Vick Fails Drug Test

Thu Sep 27, 2007 2:34 am

If there was any doubt before about this guy's decision making ability, this should put it to rest....

I can't stand Michael Vick but why are they giving him a pot test?
His previous actions has nothing to do with smoking weed.

A condition of his plea agreement and release until his formal sentencing I would guess.

It probably also has some lines in there about not associating with nefarious characters which would keep him from hanging out with his younger brother.  Wink

Been a good year for Mr. Vick.


After the state gets done with him his career should be about done. Shame he was exciting to watch on the football field.

I pretty sure it was part of the plea deal, and his bond, but I can't find anything to back it up.

BTW - did anyone see that he was indicted by Virginia yesterday.

.....except to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that he is completely devoid of any reasonable decision-making capabilities. This guy is nothing more than a flat-out idiot who's so myopic and dense that he'd sooner shoot himself in the foot than make a rational decision.....and he continues to prove it day after day.

It's most likely part of the routine pre-sentence investigation. I know in state court where I live, persons on probation are subject to random drug tests. Bottom line, a condition of being released on bond or probation is that you will obey all laws. He's an idiot....

Talk about when it rains, it pours. Now the bank is after him as well.


Canadian Bank Sues Michael Vick

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -- Royal Bank of Canada has sued suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick for more than $2.3 million.

The bank argued that his guilty plea to federal dogfighting charges and the resulting impact on his career have prevented him from repaying a loan.

The loan's terms specify that any employment change negatively impacting Vick's income constitutes a default on the loan, according to the lawsuit.

My man, why on earth would you feel sorry for him? Its not anyone's fault but his own that he is perhaps one of the dumbest athelets on the face of the earth right now. Nobody forced him to ruin his NFL career and lose millions upon millions of dollars dog fighting. Nobody forced him to suck on the hippie lettuce while he is out on bail awaiting his sentencing in which he will go to the hole. He doesn't deserve our sympathy because he is making bad decision after bad decision. If me or you did crap like that, we would be screwed and ole Vick wouldn't give a rats ass.

In reply #10 I stated that I had no idea he was being monitored for drug use. If he knew he was going to be tested, then he is even dumber than I thought. I have 0 respect for Michael Vick for his past behavior. I could care less if he smokes weed but if you are expected to take drug test, then he should know to leave the pot alone.
In his press conference, he stated that he "needs to grow up". Well I guess that was all lip service.

Who cares? Screw him, He is a piece of trash. Maybe he had enough courage to even look in those dogs eyes when he killed them. I hope he rots in jail, loses his career and goes broke. Maybe he can become a security guard when he gets out jail like Gary Coleman.

I haven't followed the details of his case that closely, but I heard earlier today on the radio that Vick is represented by not one, but FIVE lawyers. I will guarantee that at least one of them (and probably 4 or 5) specifically told him to be prepared to be drug tested and not do anything stupid. The probation people doing the Pre-Sentence Investigation get to recommend to the judge what they think Vick's sentence should be. The judge warned Vick when he pled that the decision would be the judge's alone, and he can give him the maximum. His honor will not be amused by this drug test and will likely throw the book at Vick.

I guess they want to cash in and swindle him for his worth while he still has some cash. In 5 years, he wont have the $$$ to hire good lawyers to get himself out of trouble then.

Reasons why this doesn't surprise me at all:

1. The photo of him and his girl in the back of a limo that surfaced last summer. He's trying to hide the joint he was smoking on.


2. The water bottle with the hidden compartment incident. Let's just say the Falcons' Mr. Fix-It For Vick, Billy "White Shoes" Johnson made sure the earlier mentions of the TSA agent smelling pot in the hidden compartment disappeared from the incident.

Oh I know. I don't expect rational though out of this peckerwood either. He's a dumbass on his best day.

I just like it when a judge goes off on someone for being such a dumbass and I hope this judge does the same and tosses him in the pokey for a long time so he can enjoy some funky butt loving.

The problem is Vick has the education, brainpower, and mentality of a 7 year old so I'd say he's right in line.

That's only during the course of the pretrial investigation and prior to sentencing - after sentencing he'll be in a different situation, I'm sure.

Speaking as an employee of the US Department of Justice, you're correct. Standard operating procedure in a case such as Vick's is a drug test prior to sentencing as part of the Presentencing Report.

i really dont care for Michael Vick, but good god you all are acting like pot-smoking is some kind of serious situation...a regular scourge on society. hell at that rate, someone who drinks three or four beers is a 'dumbass throwing their life away' as well. and for the record, i couldn't care less about 'legalizing' it or anything...its just a little absurd when people are comparing marijuana to crack and steroids...wow~

the guy is an idiot though if he was already aware of the drug-testing stipulation.

It was. It has nothing to do with whether pot-smoking is good or bad, it has all to do with the fact that he was told not to do it as a condition of his release, and he failed to meet that requirement. He is an idiot who clearly just won't learn and/or thinks he's above the law. I hope this scumbag gets sent back to lockup pending sentencing as anyone else would. The good thing about the whole thing is that maybe the judge will go harder on him during sentencing as a result of this violation.

Michael Vick did not care much about his career. It is sad that he had so much going for him and he loss it all thanks to his own stupidity. It was bad enough he had a hand in dog fighting, but now he was doing pot too. Well it's his life not mine.
