NFL Security Officers Reportedly Contact County Investigators in Vick Case
NFL security officials reportedly have offered their assistance to Surry County, Va., investigators who are looking into allegations that Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was involved in a dog-fighting operation in Virginia.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported today that members of the league's security staff called county officials and showed up Thursday at county offices.
Surry County authorities are deciding whether to bring charges against Vick or anyone else stemming from an alleged dog-fighting operation in a home then owned by Vick. Vick has denied knowledge of illegal activity on the property.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said this week that he's very concerned about the allegations and is monitoring the situation closely but thinks it's premature to say whether league-imposed discipline against Vick will be forthcoming. Members of the league's security staff routinely contact law enforcement officials regarding criminal activity or allegations of crimes committed by NFL players.
