The brother of quarterback Michael Vick is facing a drug charge after being arrested in Virginia.

Multiple news outlets report that police say 32-year-old Marcus Vick was arrested Saturday in Newport News and charged with one count of possession of a schedule I or II drug following a search of his apartment.

Police went to the scene after receiving a drug complaint. Authorities say officers smelled marijuana coming from the apartment as they approached.

Police say Marcus Vick opened the door and allowed officers inside. Vick and four others in the apartment were detained.

Earlier this year, Marcus Vick was charged with assaulting a police officer who was arresting him on a contempt charge in Virginia.

It's unclear if Marcus Vick has an attorney.
