Vick Can Drink Without Violating Probation

The Philly Enquirer reports that new Eagles QB Mike Vick is not barred from drinking, and didn’t violate his terms of probation when he had a drink recently:

Michael Vick did not violate the terms of his probation nor the conditions of his NFL reinstatement when he drank an alcoholic beverage on the night after his first practice since being released from prison, an Eagles spokesman said yesterday. The day after Vick’s return to the field, a report in the New York Post described the new Eagles quarterback “sipping on a Grey Goose [vodka] and pineapple juice” at the Riverbend Bar & Grill, a restaurant at the Philadelphia Airport Marriott.

On July 27, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell detailed the conditions of Vick’s reinstatement in a letter. He wrote that the former Atlanta Falcons player, who was incarcerated for 18 months on a dogfighting conviction, was “required to abide by the terms of the supervised release that were imposed on you by the court, which include not committing any further crime, limits on who you may associate with, prohibitions regarding drug and alcohol use, possession of a firearm or other dangerous weapon, and forbidding you to own, possess, or be involved with the sale of any dog.” Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko wrote in an e-mail to The Inquirer that Vick was “not in conflict with terms of his probation or reinstatement with the NFL.” The Eagles did not refute or confirm the New York Post’s story.
