Former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick has pleaded guilty to drunken driving and other charges.

Norfolk Commonwealth's Attorney spokeswoman Amanda Howie said Vick also was convicted yesterday (10-20-08) of eluding police and driving on the wrong side of the road.

The 24-year-old brother of former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was arrested in June after fleeing from a bicycle patrol officer who saw him and a woman involved in a dispute.  Vick was stopped minutes later.

A judge suspended a 12-month jail sentence on the DUI charge, but Vick must pay $530 in fines and lose his license for a year.

Vick was dropped from the Virginia Tech team in 2006 after a series of problems, including stomping on the leg of University of Louisville defensive end Elvis Dumervil.  The Miami Dolphins released him a year later.
