Speaking Of Enabling Bad Behavior...

Virginia Tech has finally become fed up with the criminal behavior of Marcus Vick and booted him from the team. He intends to turn pro. Hopefully the only draft he gets close too is in a poorly insulated jail cell. From Fox News/AP:
SUFFOLK, Va. (AP) - Former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick, booted from the team last week for his behavior on and off the field, was charged Monday with pulling a gun on three teenagers during an altercation in a restaurant parking lot.

Vick surrendered at the Suffolk magistrate's office after three warrants were issued for his arrest Sunday, Magistrate Lisa Noel said.
This isn't the first time that Marcus has mistaken athletic prowess as a blank check to act like a thug:
