Vick Not Wanted in Arizona Case

The sheriff's office in Phoenix now says there is no apparent tie between Atlanta Falcons Quarterback Michael Vick and a 2004 dog fighting investigation in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio told a Phoenix radio station that Vick was a "person of interest regarding pit bull fighting."

But on Thursday afternoon Arpaio's press office says that's not the case. They say in a statement that after learning of Vick's indictment in Virginia on federal dog fighting charges, local detectives recalled a case where a witness said an NFL player may be involved in organizing dog fights.

After reviewing the long-closed case, detectives found the player was not Vick. The sheriff's office won't release the other player's name. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
