GRAPHIC=VICK, MIKE Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael


Vick has been indicted by a federal
grand jury for his alleged role in an
illegal dog fighting ring....This all
supposedly happened on his Surry County
property that's been searched by
investigators several times....

We must warn you how some of the
details in this story are disturbing.

OQ=BODY TO THE GROUND < (END SOT) where investigators say it all


happened......

In court papers filed Tuesday,
Former Hokies Star Michael Vick and

three others, Purnell Peace, Quanis
Phillips and Tony Taylor were all
charged with one federal count of
illegal dog fighting...That includes
illegal gambling....sponsoring and
exhibiting dogs in dog fights......and
being involved in bringing dogs onto
the property specifically for fighting.

Accoring to the documents,back in
2001, which would have been Vick's
rookie year with the Falcons, Vick
"PURCHASED AND DEVELOPED A PARCEL OF
PROPERTY TO SERVE AS THE MAIN STAGING
AREA FOR HOUSING AND TRAINING PITT
BULLS INVOLVED IN THE ANIMAL FIGHTING
VENTURE AND FOR HOSTING DOG FIGHTS."

Authorities say the dog fighting
enterprise was known as Bad Newz
Kennels and all the key players had
code names..

And when dogs didn't perform well
authorities say they were
executed....Here are two specific
examples listed in the indictment......

IN "MARCH OF 2003, PEACE, AFTER
CONSULTING WITH VICK ABOU THE LOSING
FEMALE PITT BULL'S CONDITION, EXECUTED
THE LOSING DOG BY WETTING THE DOG DOWN
WITH WATER AND ELECTROCUING THE

ANIMAL."

The feds say those weren't the
only executions .....the idictment
lists this example from just a few
months ago.....

QUOTE "IN OR ABOUT APRIL 2007, PEACE,
PHILLIPS, AND VICK EXECUTED
APPROXIMATELY 8 DOGS THAT DID NOT
PERFORM WELL IN "TESTING" SESSIONS AT
1915 MOONLIGHT ROAD BY VARIOUS METHODS,
INLCUDING HANGING, DROWNING AND
SLAMMING AT LEAST ONE DOG'S BODY TO THE
GROUND." >>

If convicted, Vick and the others

Justin you had said the state has no
way of knowing for sure how much
Virginians will save, why is that?

Natasha, state officials say stores
typically gather sales information on a
monthly basis, and it would be too
burdensome to ask them to tally up the
numbers for just three days.

the low was 70. On the radar tonight,
most of the showers and storms have
diminished with the loss of daytime
heating. Any remaining shower should be
light. Areas that received rain today
will likely find patchy fog developing
overnight. The national analysis shows
high pressure still situated over
Bermuda, with a moist, southwest flow
bringing in the heat and humidity. A
stationary front is staying put just to

the west. This pattern will persist
until Friday, bringing afternoon and
early evening storms, with heavy rain,

show. Michael Vick has been indicted
by a Federal Grand Jury. This could
have a definite impact on his N-F-L
Career. The league recently passed a
Code of Conduct Policy.

ENG#=2 VO-NAT



VO-NAT As part of that, many players


have been suspended by the N-F-L for
their transgressions with the law.
What Vick's penalty could be from the
league will depend on what the
Commissioner of the League Roger
Goodell decides. There is no jury,
just the commissioners opinion and what
he decides is aporpriate. He has
already suspended Adam "Pacman" Jones
for the entire 2-thousand and 7 for his
