Falcons | Vick reportedly found at airport with unknown substance
Wed, 17 Jan 2007 20:05:18 -0800

NBC6.net reports Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick was found Wednesday, Jan. 17, at Miami International Airport reportedly carrying a water bottle with a hidden compartment, according to TSA Operations Center Officials.

Vick was going through a screening point to board an AirTran flight when officials said he was reluctant to give up his bottle of water. Airport officials said the bottle's label concealed a seam, which separated the top and bottom of the bottle. Both ends were sealed by clear partitions and what appeared to be a silicone sealant.

The concealed compartment contained a small amount of a dark particulate and officials described a pungent aroma closely associated with marijuana. Officials said the lower half of the bottle was almost completely full of a clear liquid and the top half contained a small amount of the same clear liquid.

When held upright, the bottle appeared to be half full of water, according to TSA officials. Vick has not been arrested and the substance found inside the bottle is being analyzed at a Miami-Dade Police Department lab.

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was reluctant to throw away his 20-ounce water bottle at a Miami International Airport security checkpoint Wednesday morning.

The reason, police say: The plastic bottle had a secret compartment that, when opened, had a dark residue and a pungent odor of marijuana.

Vick boarded his 8:20 a.m. AirTran flight to Atlanta before screeners called police. Now Miami-Dade police are examining the bottle and could charge him if it tests positive for drugs.

Police notified the National Football League about the investigation, Miami Herald news partner WFOR-CBS4 reported. Joel Segal, Vick's agent, declined to comment late Wednesday.

According to a Miami-Dade police report, here's what happened:

Vick, 26, balked when security at the Concourse G checkpoint asked him to surrender his water bottle, which had an Aquafina label. Security regulations prohibit travelers from carrying bottles with more than 3 ounces of liquid through checkpoints.

Eventually, Vick left the bottle behind and went to his gate. But his initial reluctance to do so aroused the suspicion of Transportation Security Administration screener Gertrude Joseph. She pulled the bottle out of a recycle bin and notified her supervisor when she discovered its hidden compartment.

Screeners told police they recognized Vick as the pro football player, and they were certain it was his water bottle because they saw him throw it away and it was the only water bottle in the recycle bin.

Miami-Dade police reviewed surveillance video from the checkpoint and said it corroborated the screeners' version of events. They also confirmed Vick was a passenger on AirTran Flight 338 from Miami to Atlanta.

The bottle had a clear partition in the middle, separating the bottle into two compartments.

''The concealed compartment contained a small amount of dark particulate and a pungent aroma closely associated with marijuana,'' Miami-Dade Detective Kevin Kozak wrote in his report. ``The top half contained a small amount of clear liquid. When held upright the bottle appeared to be half full of water.''

Vick, the top NFL draft pick in 2001, is the older brother of Miami Dolphins wide receiver Marcus Vick and second cousin of Oakland Raiders quarterback Aaron Brooks. Vick is known around the NFL for his ability to scramble away from defenders and make dazzling running plays. He is third on the NFL's all-time rushing list for quarterbacks, running for more than 1,000 yards this past season.

Vick is two years into a 10-year, $130 million contract with the Falcons.

Miami Herald staff writers Armando Salguero and Gladys Amador, and Brian Andrews, a reporter with Miami Herald news partner WFOR-CBS 4, contributed to this report.

What an idiot!! In this era when shampoo, and razors are not pemitted and you have to get go in stocking feet and have your shoes examined; he is taking marijuana. Marijuana that can get him a 4 game suspension costing him over 3 million dollars.

A little bit of marijuana that can cost him so much being transported through the airport with a high risk of being caught and arrested is a sign of chemical dependency. Drugs are more important to him than his freedom, his employment, his reputation and anything else.

This guy needs an intervention.

Matt Schaub here we come!!

Vick is a turd...always has been...always willing to throw teammates and coaches under the bus to cover his own shortcomings.

Between him and Marcus...well, that is a gene pool that is better left dry!

This guy is beyond stupid! He can't do without his stimulation during a three hour or less flight? I forget what his wonderlic score was but it could have been a MINUS (-). If it wasn't, he got help. Guys like this never change because they don't understand or have common sense. I hope he gets cut...I wouldn't have him on any team I owned. Addition by sutraction.

If it was for jewelry(it wasn't) then it can only be to avoid payment of customs fees when returning to the U.S. with jewelry purchased outside the country. Not particularly safe when traveling as a water bottle would readily be disposed by anyone cleaning.

Why did stupid Vick say anything like that on the day Schaub is traded?

Does anyone think Vick will finish his contract?

Falcons | Police dispute Vick's account of water bottle incident
Fri, 23 Mar 2007 21:02:10 -0700

ESPN.com reports the Miami-Dade Police Department has disagreed with Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick's description of an incident in January where his water bottle was seized at Miami International Airport.

Vick claims the water bottle was a jewelry box, but police claimed the bottle smelled of marijuana and had a secret compartment. "If you had seen the bottle, you would have never known there was any jewelry in there.

I have had things stolen out of hotels. But I had never checked it through the airport," Vick said. Detective Nelda Fonticella, a spokeswoman for the Miami-Dade Police Department, told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution that was the first time they had heard that story when asked if Vick was carrying jewelry in the bottle.

"If he has any kind of problem with the way things were handled, then he needs to talk to internal affairs," Fonticella added. There are no documents related to the incident that mention jewelry, including the police report and the Florida state attorney's case memo, according to the newspaper.
