Marcus Vick arrested, charges include assaulting police officer
Marcus Vick, the younger brother of NFL quarterback Michael Vick, was arrested over the weekend and charged with assault on a police officer among other offenses.
According to court records obtained by WTKR in Virginia, Newport News Police say Vick had a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a contempt of court charge in a different county. When police approached him to take him into custody on Sunday, Vick pushed an officer into a counter top and tried to run off.
The former Virginia Tech star was charged with assault and battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, destruction of property and obstruction of justice.
Vick has been in trouble with the law before, most recently when he was arrested for driving while under the influence in 2013. Sports fans may be most familiar with the younger Vick for the infamous tweets he has sent criticizing his brother’s teammates and coaches. Marcus even criticized Michael when Michael was with the Jets back in 2014.
