Brother of NFL QB Vick arrested in Forsyth County

By The Associated Press
CUMMING, Ga - Sheriff's officials in Forsyth County said the younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been arrested for DUI and traffic violations.

Forsyth County deputies said in a report that Marcus Vick, 29, was pulled over early Monday in Cumming, for an expired tag and was questioned about marijuana after a deputy smelled the drug in his car.

Police said Vick was driving without a license and told officers he smoked pot about four hours before.

Investigators reported finding a large sum of money but no drugs inside the car. Vick is charged with DUI, driving without a license and driving with an expired tag. He's being held in the county jail on $4,100 bond.

Marcus Vick was a quarterback for Virginia Tech between 2002 and 2005.
