    Marcus Vick arrested after saying he'll go pro

    RICHMOND, Va. -- Former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick, booted from the team last week for his behavior on and off the field, was charged Monday with pulling a gun on three teenagers during an altercation in a restaurant parking lot.

    Vick surrendered at the Suffolk magistrate's office after three warrants were issued for his arrest Sunday, Magistrate Lisa Noel said.

    The 21-year-old Vick was charged with three misdemeanor counts of brandishing a firearm, and was released on $10,000 bond.

    Police said the parents of a 17-year-old boy reported that Vick pointed a weapon at their son and two others during an altercation at a McDonald's in Suffolk, a southeastern Virginia city where Vick's mother lives, Sunday night.

    If convicted of all three counts, Vick could be sentenced to up to three years in jail and a $7,500 fine, police spokeswoman Lt. Debbie George said in a statement.

    On Friday, Virginia Tech kicked Vick off the team, citing the cumulative effects of numerous legal problems and his unsportsmanlike conduct in the Gator Bowl, where he was caught on tape stomping on the left calf of Louisville All-American Elvis Dumervil.

    He also received a speeding ticket and a ticket for driving on a suspended license in Hampton on Dec. 17 while under a "zero tolerance" policy from Virginia Tech.

    The policy was implemented when Vick was suspended in 2004 because of several legal problems. He later came under further scrutiny because of replays of his actions against Dumervil.

    Vick claimed it was accidental, but hurt his cause by claiming to have apologized to Dumervil, the NCAA sacks leader. Dumervil said he received no such apology.

    Saturday, Vick announced he had decided to turn pro.

    A Virginia Tech spokesman said university officials would have no comment on Vick's arrest.

    "At this point, I think the actions speak for themselves," the spokesman, Larry Hincker, said.

    Vick is the younger brother of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick. He was the runner-up to Wake Forest's Chris Barclay, by one vote, as the Atlantic Coast Conference's offensive player of the year, and was the league's first-team quarterback.

    In 24 career games, the 6-foot, 212-pound Vick threw for 2,868 yards, 19 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He also ran 184 times for 492 yards and six TDs.

    WTF? I don't know much about Marcus Vick except what I read in SI a few months ago. It sounded like he was aware that being a high-profile celeb, he needed to keep a low profile. If there is any truth to this, I am just baffled. How stupid do you have to be to pull shit like this? I mean, he is losing millions with every incident. It might already too late, but he's looking to go the way of Clarett. I flash in the pan coulda been. It's frikken sad.

    The guy must have mental problems. Everytime somebody gives him another chance he goes out and does something stupid like this. What the hell is his problem?

    The location of the incident is ironic, because that's where he would be working if not for his brother.

    My big question is, what the hell is Michael telling him, if anything? You would think Michael Vick would be giving him a ear full to get his ass straighten up.

    I'm not sure Michael Vick is the best possible role model and/or confidant. Michael, AKA Ron Mexico, is a thug as well. He just seems to have dodged the snares so far.

    Im sure Mike does tell him to str8en up, but im sure marcus thinks he is untouchable to some extent bc he is lil vick and his brother is a celeb. I would be shocked if and when he gets drafted that he survives 5 years in the league. str8 up moron.

    haha, Marcus would be perfect for the raiders. the dude's a spoiled brat and thinks he's untouchable. he's 21 and acting as expected considering his celeb status, all the ladies and flow he could want.

    It's like the other celeb thugs - weren't there a few "Sopranos" guys that did some stoopid crap...think they were around 20's too.

    I'm sure michael is tellin him to straighten up...but how many twenty-somethings you know listen to anybody? Especially, their damn older brotha...

    Broncos will draft Vick in the late 4th round as a RB prospect. Vick will show attitude during training camp, ride the pine, then get cut one week before the regular season.
