Vick Wined then Fined

5/14/2008 8:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They just keep piling it up on Michael Vick. Now he's been ordered to fork over more than a million bucks for a failed wine bar he tried to open.

Court docs allege Vick and buddy Gerald Jenkins borrowed more than $1.1 million in May of 2006 from Wachovia Bank to open a joint called Atlantic Wine & Spirits. In August of '07, Vick and his cohort failed to make the $8,000 monthly interest payment. Wachovia then declared the loan was in default because "the prospect for repayment was substantially impaired."

A 23-month sentence definitely puts a cork in Vick's ability to pay those bills.

Yet other sport stars kill their girlfriends, some drive drunk and kill people,
and some get arrested for dealing drugs, and they walk.
Why not make an example of them?

Wachovia new from the get go that this would not happen the way i t was supposed to. They have the expertise to know a risk when they see one. Also, they have insiders that are corrupt, my family was a victim of identity fraud set up by an inside job at a branch of this bank. We have bank statements with my husbands name on it with $300,000 in funds in it, but Wachovia said there was never any such account. So the crooks got away with this cash and now it's all erased.

He's Boring now    

Wachovia Bank has bigger fish on the line this idiot...like probably about a million defaulted mortgages they approved without ever checking out the people or the properties.

What Vick did...paid for, coordinated, participated in and turned a cold heart to the suffering of those poor dogs should have earned him about 6 or more years in prison. I can't even imagine a population of sports fans that would ever let that Vick back on the field, no game can be that needed.
I hope Vick has found a nice inmate, by now, and has become the perfect "bride" to some really brutal convict also serving time. Just maybe it will remind him of the "rape stands" he had built on his property for the helpless dogs!
