Vick Pleads Not Guilty

Michael Vick has pleaded not guilty to federal dog fighting allegations. A judge in Richmond, Virginia, ordered the NFL star released without bond until a November 26th trial.

Federal prosecutors allege the operation, known as Bad Newz Kennels, operated on Vick's property in Surry County.

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback and three others are accused of being involved in competitive dog fighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting, and conducting the enterprise across state lines.

In releasing the defendants without bond, the judge ordered them to surrender their passports, not travel outside their immediate area without court approval, and not sell or possess any dogs.

In addition, Vick was ordered to surrender any animal breeder or kennel license.

Vick arrived at the courthouse in a black sport utility vehicle and was booed by a crowd of hundreds as he emerged. He didn't respond to reporters.
