Hokie Football: The Marcus ConVick Experience

Like they say, when it rains, it pours.

Those words can definitely relate to Marcus Vick, who as of late can't seem to stay out of negative limelight. As I'm sure you all are already aware of, the ex-Hokie quarterback was arrested today on firearms charges for allegedly pulling a loaded gun on three teenagers in a McDonald's parking lot in Suffolk, Virginia.

Associated Press reports state that Vick would later go on to "surrender himself at the Suffolk magistrate's office after three warrants were issued for his arrest Sunday."

As far as the consequences that Vick faced, the report went on to mention that, "The 21-year-old Vick was charged with three misdemeanor counts of brandishing a firearm, and was released on $10,000 bond."

With that being said though, here's my favorite part: "If convicted of all three counts, Vick could be sentenced to up to three years in jail and a $7,500 fine, Suffolk police spokeswoman Lt. Debbie George said in a statement."

That could put a little damper on any plans to go pro.

The best part was Vick's mom saying that her son was not a monster and not as bad as people said he was. Then he goes the next day and pulls a gun on some people.

Thanks for the support mom.
