Michael Vick Won't Face Criminal Charges


MIAMI (AP) - Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick won't face criminal charges in regards to last week's highly publicized incident at Miami International Airport.

The 26-year-old Vick was forced to surrender a water bottle when he attempted to take it through airport security last Wednesday. Authorities say the bottle had a hidden compartment that contained a substance that smelled like marijuana. Vick was not arrested and went on to board a flight to Atlanta.

Lab tests on the bottle found no evidence of drugs, according to a memo today by an assistant state attorney.

Police said last week that the lab analysis could take several weeks, so the Falcons are applauding the swift action by the Miami authorities.

Vick's attorney says his client just wants to put the matter behind him.
