RICHMOND, Va. -- Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick has been charged with reckless driving and possession of marijuana, state police said Tuesday.
Vick, the brother of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, was stopped by a state trooper early Saturday morning on an interstate about 25 miles east of Richmond.
Vick was clocked on radar at 86 mph, 21 mph above the speed limit, state police spokesman Gary B. Payne said.
"As a result of the traffic stop, he also was charged with possession of marijuana," Payne said.
Both charges are misdemeanors, he said.
In May, Marcus Vick was convicted of misdemeanors stemming from a drinking party with underage girls.
He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $2,250 on three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after he and two teammates gave alcohol to 14- and 15-year-old girls at the players' apartment.
Not having learned his lesson from avoiding more serious statutory rape charges just a few months ago, this ding-dong is out speeding with pot in his car. He is rapidly working himself from someone likely drafted higher than his college performance based on his brother to tumbling down the draft board--kiss those millions goodbye.
