SUFFOLK, Va. (AP) - Former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick, tossed from the team for his on- and off-the-field actions, was charged Monday with three counts of brandishing a firearm, police said.
Vick, 21, surrendered at the Suffolk magistrate's office Monday and was later released on $10,000 bond, The Virginian-Pilot reported in its online edition.
The parents of a 17-year-old boy said Vick pointed a weapon at their son and two others during an altercation on Sunday, police spokeswoman Lt. D.J. George said.
Vick's lawyer, Larry Woodward, confirmed the arrest, but declined further comment.
Virginia Tech on Friday kicked Vick off the football team, citing the cumulative effects of numerous legal transgressions and his unsportsmanlike conduct in the Jan. 2 Gator Bowl, where he was caught on tape stomping on the left calf of an opponent.
Vick is the younger brother of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.
