Mike Vick
got some serious protection at a NYC bar Thursday night ... when security got physical with a heckler who was taunting the Jets QB about dogs ... and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

Vick -- along with former Philadelphia Eagles teammate LeSean McCoy and others -- were hangin' out at The Ainsworth to watch the NFL Draft when the group was approached by a man holding a cell phone and screaming about a dog. 

Sources at the bar tell us ... the man tried to get right up in Vick's face -- and that's when security stepped in, grabbed the man, and tried to physically drag him outside. 

We're told Vick and his crew kept their cool during the incident ... and later went outside to check on the situation. 

When they got outside the bar, security was still getting into it with the heckler -- and Vick and his crew just stood back and watched ... refusing to get involved. 

Eventually, the heckler was kicked out ... and Vick, McCoy and the rest of the group went back inside and enjoyed the rest of the draft.   

Welcome to New York.

The Ainsworth had no comment when contacted about the story.

If Mike had popped this a-hole like he should have, he'd be facing a million dollar lawsuit now! He's paid his debt to society and yet white reactionaries still feel the need to give him the "Eartha Kitt Treatment" There is no redemption for Black celebrities. WHITE RACISM RULES!!!

Well that's how ignorant some people are especially when they get a few drinks in them. He was not mad about dogs he is mad because the man is rich and there is nothing he can do about it. That is white folks for you they forgot their murderous past and not some damn animals I am talking about humans. Oh but they forgot all about that.

You people really crack me up. Instead of continually venting anger at Vick, who by the way, PAID his debt to society, why don't you show the same disdain for the trailer park trash that has sex with their own relatives procreating, blowing up schools, shooting up schools....etc..... You're a joke to the human race.

I see some "racist" condemns white people because some dogs died.they didn't just die buckwheat they were made to fight and died a horrible death.I guess what you are saying is only white people find that offensive.Hmmmmmmmmmm well now this 'cracker" has a new reason to despise you thanks.Not only that he sucks as a QB.

The Internet is a haven for white supremacy. They love to post their racist views, their holy than thou, attitude. Some of the biggest hypocrits to ever walk the earth. After slavery, they should never, ever, ever, say anything about anyone, or any race. Who does that? Kidnap a race, bring them over in boats, feed them to the sharks, if they weren't strong enough to survive the sardine packed boats....Whip, Hung, KIlled, Raped, and Tortured blacks for nearly 500 years straight legally; but it continued for years, and still continues with the police brutality. Then they control every entity in this country, and tell blacks, that everything is equal.
