Updates on Marcus Vick After Arrest for DUI

Marcus Vick, the younger brother of Michael Vick and former Virginia Tech quarterback, was arrested on Monday morning in Georgia for driving while under the influence of marijuana.

TMZ Sports was the first to report the news and tweeted out the story:

A law enforcement official told TMZ that Vick was driving a 2013 Lexus LX570 and was initially stopped for driving with expired tags. Vick was driving the vehicle around 2:30 a.m. Monday morning and was booked for his arrest at 4:20 a.m.

The former Hokies quarterback was once considered one of the best quarterback recruits in the country, but his fall from grace has been a hard one. After being kicked off of the Virginia Tech football team following the 2005 football season, Vick's life has continued to spiral downward.   

He spent a short amount of time with the Miami Dolphins after going undrafted in the 2006 NFL draft but spent most of his time with the practice squad. The former quarterback switched to wide receiver and played in just one game during the fourth quarter against the New York Jets, recording no receptions.

After his brother Michael Vick lost his starting job this season to Nick Foles, Marcus made it known that he was not happy about the decision via Twitter. One of his rants was during the game against the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 20.

Here are a few of the tweets Vick put out throughout the game:

The Eagles would go on to lose the game but would respond by winning the NFC East and making the playoffs thanks to Foles' performance down the stretch.

Vick was also arrested in 2012 for blowing off multiple court dates after driving on a suspended license charge, according to the TMZ report.

While nothing else has been reported about Vick's most recent situation with law enforcement, when more news does break it will be added to this story.
