Former college football star Marcus Vick -- the younger brother of Michael Vick -- was arrested in Georgia this morning after cops say he was driving while high on marijuana ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement tells TMZ Sports ... the 29-year-old former Virginia Tech quarterback was driving a 2013 Lexus LX570 which was stopped around 2:30 AM for expired tags.

During the stop, cops noticed the presence of marijuana and Vick was arrested for DUI.

Vick was hauled to a nearby station ... and sources tell us he was booked right around 4:20 AM.

Vick is no stranger to trouble ... he was arrested in Virginia in 2012 for blowing off multiple court dates stemming from driving on a suspended license charge.

Aside from that ... he was booted off the Virginia Tech football team back in 2006 following a string of arrests and convictions and has been involved in multiple legal issues since ... including gun charges.

2:05 PM PT -- According to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, the arresting officer noticed a strong odor of marijuana on Vick's breath.

Cops say Vick also admitted that he smoked weed just before driving the car.

During the stop, cops say Marcus was not carrying a valid driver's license on his person ... and was not licensed to drive in Georgia.

Cops say Vick had just over $1k in cash in his pocket at the time of the bust ... and his passenger had $6k inside of a book bag.

Marcus consented to a blood test ... the results have not been released.

How did you get a pic of him playing football? Never heard of him, especially being mike vics lil bro.. Seems his rap sheet has better stats than his football career. So why are we talking about him again?

I hope this gets dismissed... Sounds like BS to me. If they didn't find any mj, they should have just let him go. And how the hell are the tags already expired??

Wow. Google or Wiki this guy and it will take a while to read about all of his trouble with the law. Very long rap sheet. Didn't read about any dog killing, though. Gotta give him credit for that.
