Michael Vick's Former Best Friend Turns State Evidence

It's a wrap. Michael Vick is going down. His former best friend from high school, Tony Taylor, turned State's and testified that the 'Bad Newz Kennels' operation and gambling moneys were almost exclusively funded by Vick. His statement also lists several dogfights that Vick attended in Virginia and other states. The principals in the dogfighting ring split any winnings, and Taylor -- who spent most of his time raising and training the pit bulls -- used his share for living expenses. Taylor also confirmed the indictment's claim that he helped purchase pit bulls and killed at least two dogs that fared poorly in test fights.
