Virginia Tech officials said Tuesday they took the action because of Vick's convictions in May on three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after he and two teammates gave alcohol to 14- and 15-year-old girls at the players' apartment. Vick, who was acquitted of a charge of having sex with one of the girls, was sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $2,250. The suspension also was based on reckless driving and marijuana possession charges filed against Vick last month after an early morning traffic stop on Interstate 64 in New Kent Kent County. The 20-year-old player faced trial on those charges Tuesday.
