Vick In Jail For Thanksgiving

WARSAW, Va. (AP) _ This Thanksgiving is going to be different
for Michael Vick.

The disgraced NFL quarterback is behind bars in a Virginia jail,
but he will get to enjoy a hot turkey dinner and a non-contact
visit with a loved one if he wants.

The jail holds more than 400 inmates. Meals are delivered to
each of the jail's 20 housing units. Thursday's will be extra
special -- turkey, stuffing, rice, cranberry sauce and sweet potato
pie.

High-profile prisoners are sometimes kept away from the general
population, but jail officials won't say where their new celebrity
inmate is being held within the facility.

The Atlanta Falcons QB unexpectedly turned himself in yesterday.
He'll be housed at the jail until his sentencing on a federal
dogfighting charge in three weeks. He faces up to five years in
prison.
