(Newser) – Michael Vick is out of jail, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports—though he’s in transit from Kansas to Virginia, where he’s to appear next week at a bankruptcy hearing. To add insult to injury, a judge ordered the NFL star to foot the $3,600 it costs to transport him from the Kansas prison where he’s incarcerated to the Virginia court.
