PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) -- The Federal Bureau of Prisons says suspended NFL quarterback Michael Vick has been moved again
The bureau's Web site reported Thursday that the former Atlanta Falcons star was moved to the medium security unit of the Petersburg Federal Correctional Complex about 25 miles southeast of Richmond.
Friday the BOP website said he was at the U.S. Penitentiary in Atlanta, the city where he became a pro football star. The prison has a detention center for inmates who are being moved. However, the BOP will not confirm on his way west to return to the penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas.
A bankruptcy judge Tuesday had ordered Vick to return to Kanas. It was unclear whether Vick is still going back there. His attorneys had sought to keep him in Virginia.
Vick has served most of a 23-month sentence for bankrolling a dogfighting ring in Leavenworth. Vick is scheduled to transfer to home confinement in Hampton, Va., on May 21.
