MIAMI – Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick wasn’t carrying marijuana when stopped by security last week at Miami International Airport, ESPN reported Sunday.
Citing anonymous NFL sources, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported Vick wasn’t carrying marijuana or any other illegal substance. The ESPN report also cited an anonymous Falcons source, who said the team expects to hear something formal by Monday.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello wouldn’t comment on the report. He told The Associated Press the league had received no information on the issue.
Last Wednesday, Vick reluctantly surrendered a water bottle to security at the Miami airport. He was not arrested and was allowed to board an AirTran flight to Atlanta.
The bottle was found to have a compartment that contained “a small amount of dark particulate and a pungent aroma closely associated with marijuana,” the police report said.
Miami police have said it could take weeks to decide whether to file charges.
