WHILE BOARDING A PLANE! – Michael Vick, QuarterBack of the Atlanta Falcons,Â reluctantly surrendered a water bottle to security at Miami International Airport that contained a residue â€œclosely associated with marijuana.â€ Police said today that no charges immediately were filed. The 26-year-old Atlanta Falcons quarterback entered an airport concourse Wednesday morning with the 20-ounce bottle. He eventually handed it over and boarded his flight to Atlanta. But his initial reluctance to turn over the bottle aroused suspicion among airport security screeners, a police report said. Two Transportation Security Administration screeners recognized the 6-foot, 215-pound Vick.
The bottle was found to have a hidden compartment that contained â€œa small amount of dark particulate and a pungent aroma closely associated with marijuana,â€ the report said. The compartment was hidden by the bottleâ€™s label so that it appeared to be a full bottle of water when held upright, police said.
Police said the bottle was sent to the Miami-Dade County crime lab for analysis. It could be weeks before any decision is made on whether to file charges, said Detective Alvaro Zabaleta.
â€œWeâ€™ll do an analysis and see what it is. Thereâ€™s no sense of urgency to it,â€ he said to. Vick did not immediately return a phone call early Thursday. â€œWe plan to look into the matter and discuss it with Michael Vick before having any further comment,â€ Falcons spokesman Reggie Roberts said.
Haha nice going! What a way to land yourself on theÂ No-Fly list. When will these people learn? You can’t bring sand toÂ the beach, and you sure as hell can’t bring weed on a plane! This ain’t Soul Plane!
