Vick, three others indicted on dog fighting charges

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and three other men were indicted today in Richmond federal court on federal charges related to dog fighting.

U.S. Attorney Chuck Rosenberg announced the charges late in the afternoon.

Vick and the others are accused of running a dog fighting enterprise called “Bad Newz Kennels” on Vick’s Smithfield property from 2001 until April of this year. The indictments allege they engaged in dog fighting in other locales up and down the Atlantic coast as well.
