Miami’s NBC 6 reports that Michael Vick was found with a hidden compartment in a water bottle at Miami International Airport on Wednesday.
Vick was said to be reluctant to give up his water bottle at a screening point while trying to board an AirTran flight to Atlanta.
Airport officials indicate that it was a 20 oz. Aquafina bottle with a concealed seam behind the bottle’s label. The seam apparently separated the top of the bottle from the bottom. The partitions were sealed by what appeared to be silicone sealant. The concealed compartment contained a small amount of a dark substance that officials describe to have the pungent aroma closely associated with marijuana. When held upright, the bottle appeared to be half full of water.
Vick has not been arrested, and the substance in the bottle is being analyzed by Miami-Dade Police.
The Falcons released a statement to CBS 46 in Atlanta on Wednesday night: “We understand there have been reports allegedly involving Michael Vick that took place at the Miami International Airport earlier today. We plan to look into the matter and discuss it with Michael before having any further comment.”
