Firearm charges against Marcus Vick dropped

Former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick has resolved his recent legal problems, pleading guilty to disorderly conduct charges in one court and speeding and driving without a valid driver's license in another. As part of his guilty plea of disorderly conduct, prosecutors dropped three counts of brandishing a firearm against Vick.

In January, three days after being kicked off the Virginia Tech team, Vick was charged with pulling a gun on three teenagers during an altercation in a McDonald's parking lot.

Prosecutors said Monday that "seriously conflicting evidence" on the gun charges led to the plea deal.

Vick was sentenced to six months in jail and a $500 fine. However, his jail time was suspended on condition of good behavior for one year.
