RICHMOND, Va. -- A federal grand jury has indicted Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick in an investigation into illegal dogfighting.
During an April 25 drug raid at the property, authorities seized 66 dogs, including 55 pit bulls, and equipment commonly used in dogfighting. About half the dogs were tethered to car axles with heavy chains that allowed the dogs to get close to each other, but not to have contact, an arrangement typical for fighting dogs, according to the search warrant affidavit.
Investigators seized a "rape stand," used to hold dogs in place for mating; an electric treadmill modified for dogs; a pry bar used to open the clamped mouths of dogs; and a bloodied piece of carpeting.
Vick, who is in the process of selling the property, said he rarely visits the home and was unaware of any crime that might have been taking place there. His cousin, Davon Boddie, was living in the house at the time of the raids.
