Retired NFL player Michael Vick’s father was arrested in a large heroin and money laundering ring. He was one of 11 people arrested in the scheme.
And while seven of the 12 made initial appearances Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Norfolk, according to The Virginian-Pilot, Boddie remains at large.
The alleged conspiracy began in 2014 and involved more than 1 kilogram of heroin, according to the indictment.
It’s unclear if the 55-year-old has a relationship with the former quarterback, who was once estranged from his father and convicted of operating a dogfighting ring 10 years ago, which almost ruined his football career.
The No. 1 pick in the 2001 NFL Draft was playing for the Falcons when he plead guilty to the federal charges. Vick was sentenced to 21 months in prison, but he returned to the league in 2009. Atlanta released Vick that year, but he went on to play for the Eagles, Jets and Steelers.
Boddie’s other son, Marcus Vick, was arrested in Newport News, Va. on an ecstasy possession charge last year, which is reportedly still pending.
