Marcus Vick heading to jail

NEWPORT NEWS, VA (WBBT) - Former Virginia Tech and NFL player Marcus Vick will spend at least 10 days in jail for ignoring court orders.

A Newport News Sheriff's spokeswoman says the younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick reported to jail on Sunday. A judge on Monday ordered him to spend 10 days in jail for contempt of court after failing to appear at two court dates for a charge of driving on a suspended license.

Police say once Vick serves his time there he will be transferred to Montgomery County for failure to pay 40-thousand dollars owed in a civil case.
