The father of former NFL quarterback Michael Vick was named in a federal indictment for a heroin conspiracy case with 11 other defendants in Virginia on Wednesday.

Tina Vick, the aunt of Michael Vick, confirmed the indictment of 55-year-old Michael Boddie, the father of the former NFL player to affiliate WTKR.

Justice Department prosecutors charged Boddie along with 11 defendants with conspiring to possess with intent to distribute 1000 grams or more of heroin.

Several co-conspirators also face additional counts including money laundering, possession of a firearm during the commission of a drug trafficking offense, use of a communication facility, and maintaining a drug-involved premises.

Officials said several suspects were arrested and remain in custody. However, Boddie remains at-large.

Both of Boddie’s sons have had past legal troubles.

Michael Vick previously served 21 months in prison for operating an illegal dog fighting ring, which almost cost him his career in the NFL.

Police also picked up Vick’s brother, former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick, last year in Newport News, Va., for possession of ecstasy. That case is reportedly still pending.
