Report: Eagles don't see things same way as state attorney
The Philadelphia Eagles don’t necessarily view the Michael Vick situation following his 30th birthday party at Guadalajara in Virgnia Beach, Va., last month.
State attorney Harvey Bryant said on Wednesday that Vick was involved in several “confrontations” before leaving the establishment minutes before Quanis Phillips, a co-defendant in his federal dogfighting trial, was shot in the leg.
Per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles aren’t inclined to agree with everything Bryant said as they have conducted their own investigation into Vick’s not-so-smart night out on the town.
“The investigation shows he was not physically present when the shooting took place," Bryant said on Wednesday. "There were some confrontations between individuals and between groups and Michael Vick was involved in one of those confrontations.
“(It was) a confrontation that involved shouting, words passing, some bumping.”
McLane writes that an Eagles source called Bryant’s version of events a “mischaracterization.”
The only thing the Eagles have said publicly is that Vick is a member of the team and reports that they are close to releasing him are not accurate. Bryant didn’t reveal anything that would necessarily put Vick in jeopardy with the NFL. Police have identified a suspect and have said Vick isn’t someone they are looking at. Bryant said Vick didn’t do anything “that would amount to aggressive or assaultive conduct.”
Once again, it simply adds up to Vick – and those people in his inner circle – being guilty of poor judgment.
