Federal prosecutors allege the operation, known as Bad Newz
Kennels, operated on Vick's property in Surry County.

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback and three others are accused of being involved in competitive dogfighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting, and conducting the enterprise across state lines.

In releasing the defendants without bond, the judge ordered them to surrender their passports, not travel outside their immediate area without court approval, and not sell or possess any dogs.

In addition, Vick was ordered to surrender any animal breeder or
kennel license.

Vick arrived at the courthouse in a black sport utility vehicle and was booed by a crowd of hundreds as he emerged. He didn't respond to reporters.
