12 people were charged Wednesday in Virginia with connections to a heroin distribution scheme, cites USA Today from an unsealed document release. The most prominent portion of the allegations is that one of the individuals, Michael Dwayne “Vick” Boddie, the father of former Atlanta Falcons (they blew a 28-3 lead in Super Bowl LI) quarterback Michael Vick and is facing charges of dealing heroin and money laundering.
As of Wednesday evening, from USA Today, Mr. Boddie is not currently in custody.

From a three-year span starting in 2014, the father of the famed quarterback had some sort of role with 11 other individuals in the conspiracy of the distribution of 1,000 grams or more in heroin.
Multiple members of the Vick family have had run-ins with the law, most notably Michael in his dog fighting operation at the infamous ‘Bad News Kennelz’, and younger brother Marcus charged with assaulting a police officer in 2016.
