09:14 AM ET 07.08 | The Eagles have a different take on the "confrontation" that involved Michael Vick that took place before a shooting at a Virginia Beach nightclub that was hosting the quarterback's 30th birthday party. Virginia Commonwealth's attorney Harvey L. Bryant told WAVY-TV 10 in Virginia Beach that Vick had been involved in one of several "confrontations" at Guadalajara restaurant prior to a codefendant in his dogfighting case being shot. An Eagles source, however, labels Bryant's depiction of the incident as a "mischaracterization."

Hey! A Michael Vick thread? What a surprise. Congratulations, Mr. Vick. You've surpassed Brett Favre threads this offseason.

"[It was] a confrontation that involved shouting, words passing, some bumping."Bryant added that Vick had to be restrained by his friends, who then put Vick into a limo, but Vick got out to again confront someone."In terms of just using good judgment, at one point, he got in the limousine, and should have left at that point," Bryant said. "He got out of the limousine, and with the help of several friends, he was returned to to the limousine and left."

Oh, snap! Wait until Dad (Goodell) hears about this! It's on!

A mischaracterization? Like Mel Gibson's anti-Semitic tirade in front of the LAPD, ending with, "You're not Jewish, are you?" (and the cop was). Or Marge Schott's "Everything you read, when he [Hitler] came in [to power] he was good ... Everybody knows he was good at the beginning but he just went too far."

"He's an athlete and an entertainer, but he's also a human being, and things that would tick you and I off would tick him off," Bryant said. "But he extricated himself from those things and left with the help and encouragement of some of his friends and supporters."

"He has sat down with Virginia Beach detectives and answered all their questions and, in our view, has been cooperative ... and I should say cooperative and truthful," Bryant said.

When prosecutors are this passive against potential suspects that means they got nothing. Usually, they're ****.

Once a thug always a thug. Only thing prison does is introduce you to a new set of thugs to hang with when you get out.

So true. Prison teaches people to be better criminals. There is no rehab in there. Lets go back to punishment. No TV, no radio, so on only a cell, meals and a book.

nice quote. Didn't you read the paragraph on this page describing how Vick's friends had to drag Vick into the limo? He got out of the limo afterwards and was forced to get back in. I don't get how theres anyone around that still support Vick. But I guess when you have no respect for anything thats not superficial it doesn't matter much. You sound like a tool.

I mean the article in the NFL News.

ignorance is bliss! Such bland generalizations... sometimes true, but you don't need any sort of mental capacity to think up such dimwitted solutions to our crime problems.

the quotes all originate from the same source. It just depends how you choose to interpret or dream up the situation. Case in point, you use the word "drag"... where did you come up with that? Sure, it's entirely possible his friends could have dragged Vick back to the limo kicking and screaming, but it's also entirely possible they may not have had to exert too much energy to bring him back to the car (maybe some gentle coercing). Plus, how does this fit in with the club owners quotes of Vick entering a limo under his own will and stopping for 3-4 minutes to shake hands and sign autographs for fans? Please don't throw the word tool around when it applies more to you than it does to me.

I question the intelligence of a man who thinks he can accurately judge a situation from a few (selectively chosen) quotes off an AP report.

Guessing how judgmental and confrontational some of you seem to be, I'm sure you're not above verbal argument considering this... http://hamptonroads.com/node/561357... doubt it was Phillips who did so

Shortly before a shooting occurred near a Town Center nightclub, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick got birthday cake shoved in his face.

"Obviously, that's an aggravating factor for any human being," Commonwealth's Attorney Harvey Bryant said Wednesday. "And he correctly went and got into his vehicle."
