Marcus Vick, the younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, is in trouble again with the law after being arrested near Atlanta early Monday for driving while under the influence.

Vick, 29, a former college star at Virginia Tech, was stopped by law enforcement about 2 a.m. Monday in his Lexus LX570 on Georgia Highway 400 in Forsyth County, according to the Forsyth News. There was a 31-year-old unidentified man with him in the passenger seat.

According to Forsyth County Sheriff's report, Vick admitted smoking marijuana before driving. 

The younger Vick, who lives in Forsyth, did not have his driver's license with him and authorities learned he was unlicensed in Georgia. Additionally, Marcus Vick's vehicle registration had expired Aug. 31.

Deputies said in the report that they "detect(ed) an odor of marijuana … about Marcus' breath and person. When asked direct when the last time he had smoked marijuana was, Marcus stated that he had smoked marijuana while at his residence just prior to operating the motor vehicle."

The Forsyth News reported that Vick remained in the Forsyth County Detention Center Monday afternoon on a $4,130 bond. He told deputies that he is self-employed in sports marketing and memorabilia.

Vick was one of the country's top college football prospects before run-ins with law enforcement derailed his career. He was kicked off the Hokies football team in 2005 and went undrafted in the 2006 NFL draft.

He spent time on the Miami Dolphins practice squad in 2006 but never advanced.

In 2008, Vick was convicted of DUI charges in Virginia.

Michael Vick, who started for the Philadelphia Eagles at the start of this season before being injured and losing his job to Nick Foles, played quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons from 2001-06 before serving time for a federal dog-fighting conviction.

The Eagles defeated the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night to win the NFC East and will host the New Orleans Saints in the first round on the playoffs this upcoming weekend.
