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.
