Does trouble follow Philadelphia Eagles QB, and convicted dogfighter Michael Vick, or does he follow trouble?
This happened at the end of June - and I am only blogging about it now, because really there were so few news reports. Maybe you heard about it - I didn't.
A man was shot outside a Virginia Beach nightclub in Guadalajara where Vick was holding his 30th birthday party. The shooting occurred at 2:30. The police now concur Vick had left the scene before any shots were fired, and was not directly involved.
Probably, that is true - at least that's what police say...but Vick's record of being honest with authorities isn't exactly spiffy clean is it?
Reports vary some, but apparently this is what happened. Quanis Phillips, a
co-defendant in Vick's dogfighting case, flew into a rage when Vick and
brother Marcus Vick told him to leave the 30th-birthday
And that IS the headline. You see, Vick is barred from associating with Phillips under his parole
agreement. Phillips' brother was, according to media reports, also at the bash. Phillips and his brother were, according to some reports, invited guest, mingling with other party goers. Other reports indicate they crashed the affair and that Michael and/or Marcus Vick told them to go.
Before leaving on his own, or being asked to...Phillips reportedly created a stir, perhaps splattering frosting on the quarterback. In the parking lot, there obscenities and punches back and forth, and then Phillips was shot.
who was sentenced to 21 months in prison for his role in Vick's
infamous Bad Newz Kennels dogfighting operation, was treated at Sentara
Virginia Beach General Hospital before being released. And, so far, no arrests.
Vick told Philly.com that he should have listened to his mother, and kept the party a more private. I don't believe everything on the Net, but there was one suggestion that Vick even sold tickets to the party?? Vick added, "Everything in my life is a work in progress. I never thought something
like that would happen. If I knew I never would have showed up. There
was a lot of things I could have done to avoid a situation like that,
but I didn't."
