Marcus Vick, brother of former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was arrested this week in Forsyth County, Georgia after a traffic stop. He was charged with driving under the influence of drugs, driving without a license, and driving with expired registration.
Vick, 29, was stopped by law enforcement around 2 a.m., while driving a Lexus SUV. Investigators found a large amount of cash, but no drugs. Marcus Vick is a resident of west Forsyth County.
He told officers that he and his passenger, a 31-year old male, had smoked marijuana earlier before they were stopped.
Marcus Vick had also been a football star in his own right as he has previously played football while at Virginia Tech and also a brief stint in the National Football League (NFL).
He was being held at the Forsyth County Detention Center on a $4130 bond. DUI Drugs is a more serious charge than DUI Alcohol because the license suspension is longer (6 months) and does not allow for a restricted license or permit. It is important for Mr. Vick to hire a top-rated Forsyth County DUI Lawyer to help with his case.
