Can you say Con-VICK-ed? Not yet. But the Feds are counting on it soon. Today, Michael Vick was indicted on charges that he backed a vicious dog fighting ring at a home he owned in Virgina (above). The charges allege that the operation, which the feds say began in 2001, often left dogs dead in the ring or killed later by hanging or electrcution.
If convicted, Vick could face up to six years in prison and pay $350,000 in fines and restitution (whatever that might be when the dogs are dead).
Vick and colleagues, who were also indicted, called the place the Bad Newz Kennel.
What an offseason it’s been for the NFL. Somewhere even Pacman might be smiling.
