It does not look good right now for Falcons QB Michael Vick, as ESPN Radio is reporting that some three dozen dog carcasses were found during a search on Thursday on Vick’s property in Surry, Virgina. Also, now not one, but two investigations are underway to try and get to the bottom to see if dogfighting occurred or not on the property. First there is an investigation by federal authorities, and another investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Federal Authorities were on the grounds looking for what they believe was evidence that could come back to haunt Vick, while at the same time the U.S. Attorney’s Office has begun looking into the matter. On another note, Vick scratched an upcoming football camp that was to be held on June 30th till July 3rd. The website for the camp stated it was canned due to “scheduling issues.”
Meanwhile, the cousin of Vick, Davon Boddie, the person that was at the home of Vick in Virgina when the property was searched, has come out and stated he’s sorry for causing all the issues that have landed the QB in hot water. Boddie wants to tell NFL Commish Roger Goodell that he’s sorry for all the trouble.
“I want him (Goodell) to know that everything going on is really my fault,” said Boddie to a Florida paper on Thursday. “I want to apologize to Atlanta Falcons fans for what’s going on. It’s a lot of drama.” The reason they searched the home owned by Vick in the first place was becuase of Boddie, who was arrested on April 20th after being found with marijuana. He was charged with possession with intent to distribute.
The search then came of the home, where drug investigatros discovered 66 dogs, mostly pit bulls, as well as equipment used in training dogs to combat as well as a dogfighting pit. “There is no dogfighting,” he said. “There’s nothing of that nature.”
“They’re just making Michael look like something he’s not,” Boddie said. “Michael is the type of dude who would do his sit-ups and crunches every night, read his Bible and go to bed.” Boddie had better hope that statement is enough for Vick to convince authorities as well as the NFL that he has nothing to do with the stuff that was going on at that home.
