File Tape Vick and three others are charged
with competitive dog fighting,
procuring and training pit bulls for it
and conducting the enterprise across
state lines.

The indictment alleges that Vick
and his co-defendants began sponsoring
dog fighting in early 2001, the former
Virginia Tech star's rookie year with
the Falcons.

If convicted, Vick and the
others could face up to six years in
prison, $350,000 in fines and
restitution.

We continue to be on the edge of a
large area of high pressure which is
situated over Bermuda. This will keep
the heat and humidity locked in place
with a chance for scattered showers and
storms. Some of these storms may
produce heavy downpours, along with
strong winds, small hail and dangerous
lightning. Highs will remain near
normal through the week, but cooling by
the weekend as a front pushes through.
Highs Saturday and Sunday will only

reach the lower 80s with low humidity.

repair the damage.

because the fire is only burning in the

nature, allowing nutrients into the

Firefighters are maintaining

to stay safe.
