Former Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, now a Philadelphia Eagle, may have still been celebrating his team’s NFC East championship early Monday while his younger brother Marcus faced police questions.
Marcus Vick, a former college football star himself, was arrested in Forsyth County early Monday following a traffic stop, according to Forsythnews.com. He was arrested on charges of driving under the influence of drugs, driving without a license and driving with an expired registration, the website reported, citing a Forsyth County Sheriff’s report.
Investigators reported finding a large sum of money but no drugs inside the car, the Associated Press reported.
Marcus Vick, 29, was stopped around 2 a.m. in a Lexus Lx570 on Bethelview Road. He lives in west Forsyth, according to the report.
He and a 31-year-old passenger in the car both told police they smoked marijuana before the stop, the website reported.
He is being held at the Forsyth County Detention Center on $4,130 bond.
His football years at Virgina Tech and briefly in the NFL were marred by previous arrests and convictions.
