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.

Vick will be haunted by those dead dogs forever at least in some form or another. Deserves to be reminded of how savagely he treated those dogs.

Dante Stalworh ran over a human being while he was drunk, but i dont ever hear stories about him getting crap about "why are you still driving"??, "why are you still allowed to have a drivers license'?? its freakin ridiculous
Vick paid his due, waaayyy more than the couple bucks that stallworth paid for killing a human being !!....LOOK IT UP PEOPLE !!

Boo hoo? Vick is a savage. What he did to those dogs was heartless. And why do you have to bring up race? You sound as ignorant as Vick. Sick people.

Nicely done Vick, you handled yourself well. If you would have gotten involved you would have been in a no win situation.

Vick should be tortured everywhere he goes for his involvement in dog fighting. He's the lowest of the low and NO prison wasn't good enough.

The guy has paid his debt to society and then some. He also kept his cool in this situation and let security handle the jerk.

NO Incident Happens without the person pulling it to themselves .. #lawofattraction... guilt is what creates the idea of karma and as Vick probably thinks about hecklers and how he could be attacked by angry people who still isn't over what he's done, those things will manifest because of the guilt and energy around the situation.

So he hangs out in bars. I guess he will be making that change from inside the bar.

Vick needs to get used to it. This treatment will never go away Regardless of the time he served the money he paid. For dog/animal lovers will still feel the same.

He has paid the penalty under law for his actions, why cant he go to a bar or anywhere else without folks bothering him, he needs to become a registered gun owner and stand his ground, if he has too.
