RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The federal Department of Labor is accusing imprisoned NFL star Michael Vick of illegally withdrawing more than $1.3 million from a pension plan.
The department filed complaints Wednesday against Vick in federal district and bankruptcy courts in Newport News.
Vick attorney Mark Lichtenstein declined to comment on the complaints.
The department says Vick made a series of prohibited transfers from a pension plan sponsored by MV7, a celebrity marketing company owned by the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback.
The department says the plan assets were partially used to help pay the criminal restitution imposed on Vick after his federal dogfighting conspiracy conviction.
Vick is serving a 23-month prison term.
