 PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) -Informants have come forward saying Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was involved in dogfighting, a prosecutor investigating the case said.
Brown and Surry County Commonwealth's Attorney Gerald G. Poindexter told WAVY-TV of Portsmouth, Va., there is evidence linking Vick to dogfighting, which is a felony in Virginia.
``We have informants,'' Poindexter told the station in an interview Wednesday. ``We have people who are volunteering to make those allegations.''
The case began April 25 when police conducting a drug investigation raided the house Vick owned in rural Surry County and found dozens of dogs. They also found items associated with dog fighting, including a ``pry bar'' used to pry apart a dog's jaws.
No charges have been filed in the case.
Vick, a registered dog breeder, has blamed relatives for taking advantage of his generosity and insisted he's rarely at the house - even though he's the owner. He has since sold the home.
Poindexter also told WAVY-TV that he has not yet executed a search warrant on the property because he didn't like the language of the warrant.
