The disgraced former quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons, Michael Vick, has tested positive for marijuana use as he awaits sentencing for crimes related to dog fighting. (Click here to read the article.)
The federal judge who will sentence Vick in December has ordered him to remain home at night. Engaging in any criminal act while awaiting sentencing is both a violation of the terms of bail as well as downright foolish.

Interestingly, a study earlier this year concluded that owners of “high-risk dogs” such a pit bulls are most likely to be people who violate criminal laws.
Once again, Vick confirms the worst about certain dog owners.
