Former Virginia Tech football star Marcus Vick currently faces two arrest warrants, the Roanoke Times reported Wednesday.

The 27-year-old younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is charged with contempt of court for his failure to appear at two court dates for a charge of driving on a suspended license.

Jail spokeswoman Kathleen Carey said Vick was scheduled to report to jail Monday, but he hadn't showed up by midday Tuesday.

Police charged Vick in January 2010 with driving on a suspended license, his second such offense. Court records show he failed to show up for two court dates in 2010. He was in court last August to answer to the driving charges, as well as two counts of failure to appear.

Vick also faces an arrest warrant for failing to appear in court multiple times for a civil suit. The plaintiff's attorney in that case said Vick defaulted on a promissory note for $40,000 stemming from a 2006 suit in which a Christiansburg, Va., teenager claimed psychological trauma from a two-year sexual relationship with Vick.

Vick, a wide receiver, appeared in one game for the Miami Dolphins in 2006, but he didn't record any stats.
