Michael Vick's Eventful Birthday Bash Could Result in a Probation Violation
We haven't talked about the shooting that happened at Michael Vick's 30th birthday party at a Virginia Beach restaurant last Friday because we're on summer hours around here and facts were unknown. Details are still sketchy, but let's talk about it.
At 2:10am Friday morning, Quanis Phillips was shot in the leg outside Guadalajara, a Virgina Beach nightclub where Michael was holding his all-white party. The fete, we should add, was open to the public, so anyone who paid their $30 got in and mingled with DeAngelo Hall, LaShawn Merritt, Pusha-T, Mia Michelle, Allen Iverson and other famous people.
Back to Quanis.He was one of Michael's co-defendants in his 2007 federal dog-fighting trial. The problem: As part of his probation, Michael is barred from associating or socializing with known felons.
Michael's attorney told investigators his client left the club 30 minutes before the shooting, but according to a club spokesman and video from the scene (which shows part of the shooting), Michael left a mere three minutes before gun shots rang out.
No one has been arrested and Michael, who was interrogated by police on Monday, is not a suspect. If he is found to have any involvement, however, he will sent back to prison. His probation officer is investigating.
Update, July 6: According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, cops have closed the case. Michael was ruled out as a suspect. The police know who the shooter is but can't charge him because of a lack of cooperating witnesses.
