Vick Won't Face Charges Stemming from Airport Incident

Authorities in Miami said that Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick won't face charges stemming from last week's incident in which he reluctantly surrendered a water bottle with a secret compartment at an airport security checkpoint.

Police said last week there was a residue in the secret compartment that smelled like marijuana, but a lab reportedly found no evidence of drugs.

Where's all the snide comments now? Oh yeah the evidence doesn't fit common world view of Mr. Vick. I guess that silences the know-it-alls.

So why would anyone have a water bottle with a secret compartment? Maybe he got it from his brother and didn't notice it? I'm not sure about secret compartments in water bottles, but if you're found with a secrect compartment in an aircraft that is meant to by-pass security checks, YOU LOSE THE PLANE. I guess losing a water bottle isn't a big deal, but come on, I doubt it was for anything as innocent as smuggling liquor on board.

I regret that I cannot comment on this article, but I do not want Michael Wilbon labeling me a racist.
