Vick Arraigned On Dog Fighting Charges

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Michael Vick entered a not guilty plea to dogfighting charges in federal court in Richmond, Virginia, today. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback is free on bond until a November 26th trial.

Vick and three others entered their pleas to conspiracy charges involving competitive dogfighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting and conducting the enterprise across state lines.

All the defendants had to surrender their passports and were ordered not to travel outside their immediate area without court approval.

Vick was booed by a crowd of hundreds as he arrived at the courthouse. He faces up to six years in prison if convicted.

The Falcons opened training camp today, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has barred Vick from attending while the league investigates the charges against him.
