Sometimes people don't get a fair shake.

They happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and their name gets dragged through the mud.

Well that can’t really be said for Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback, Michael Vick.

According to WTKR.com , Vick was at a Virginia Beach club early in the morning of June 25 celebrating his 30th birthday, when a man was shot.

The report states that Adam Bernstein —a spokesman for Virginia Beachdeclined to comment on whether Vick was connected to the event.

The shooting victim was wounded, but not fatally. He received medical attention at a local hospital.

Unfortunately, the victim and the witnesses are not being cooperative, according to WTKR.com.

The other sad thing is that Vick continues to put himself in situations that are questionable at best.

Yes, he is a grown man. And yes, he should be able to go out and celebrate his birthday. But why does he feel the need to go out to a club and party until after 2 a.m.?

If Vick did not have the rap sheet he has, then fine, go out and party until 5 a.m. anywhere you want. But when you have a history of making poor decisions, and everyone in the NFL is watching your every move, wouldn’t it be smart to lay low?

Vick was given a second chance by commissioner Roger Goodell following his prison sentence that stemmed from a federal investigation into his Bad Newz Kennels.

Will Goodell give Vick another opportunity if he is connected in any way to this latest incident?

And if Vick is not given the benefit of the doubt, can you blame anyone for not wanting to give it to him?

This is starting to seem like more than someone being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
