Before suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick pleaded guilty in Richmond federal court to a dogfighting charge a few weeks ago, it seemed like the news in central Virginia was all Vick, all the time. Since then his name mostly has been showing up low in the stories about yet another Falcons loss.
But today’s papers have two new items about him.
This one is no surprise: Surry County Commonwealth’s Attorney Gerald G. Poindexter says that he will ask a grand jury for state indictments of Vick on dogfighting-related charges today. The Associated Press has the story.
And The Daily Press has an item about a bank that is suing Vick for $2.3 million, claiming default on a loan. Claiming his indefinite suspension by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell may be a change in employment jeopardizing his ability to repay, the Royal Bank of Canada says that Vick is in default and it wants its money back. The bank filed papers in Newport News federal court last week.
