Marcus Vick claimed he was racially profiled for his DUI arrest?
Vick, the younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, was arrested on a DUI charge early Monday morning. Police in Forsyth County said he was pulled over for driving with expired registration. He did not have a driver’s license on him, and officers smelled marijuana on his breath.
The Forsyth News reports that Vick and his passenger admitted to police that they smoked some weed before leaving the house.
Vick agreed to a blood test and was later booked in jail. He was charged with DUI-drugs, no license and expired registration, per the Forsyth News. He was released later that night after posting bond.
The same night he was released from jail, Marcus sent this tweet indicating he felt he was racially profiled for driving a fancy car when he was pulled over:
Class act as always, that Marcus Vick. Hey Marcus, here’s an idea: don’t smoke weed before you drive, get updated registration, and carry your license, and then you won’t have problems! Don’t blame others, blame yourself.
