NFL: Vick is home

Associated PressHAMPTON, Va. ó After Michael Vick’s first few frenzied hours at home, things seemed to settle down.
The media ranks thinned out, and gawkers were leaving after lingering into the early morning hours Thursday, hoping for a glimpse of the suspended NFL star.
Once the meeting with local probation officers was out of the way, Vick finally was reunited with his family.
“He is obviously delighted to be home,” his Virginia-based attorney, Lawrence Woodward, said.
And so ended the 28-hour, 1,200-mile journey that began early Wednesday in Leavenworth, Kan.
Still, the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback remains a federal inmate, serving two months of home confinement to complete his 23-month sentence for running a dogfighting ring. He cannot speak to the media without permission from the Bureau of Prisons. Efforts to get permission are under way, Woodward said.
Vick arrived in a black sport utility vehicle with blackout curtains, part of a four-vehicle caravan carrying a security team and others, and cruised directly into a side garage. Later, he briefly appeared on the deck of his five-bedroom home, as he and a probation officer tested the electronic monitor Vick will wear for two months.
Vick will have to check in periodically with the officers, perhaps as early as Friday. He will also be starting his $10-an-hour job as a construction laborer ó a condition of his probation.
