HAMPTON, Va., May 21 (UPI) -- Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick returned to his Virginia home after serving a federal prison term for his role in a dogfighting operation.

Vick arrived just after 8 a.m. Thursday in a four-car motorcade, the Newport News Daily Press reported. He avoided the television crews and reporters staking out around his house in Hampton by driving into the attached garage.

Larry Woodward, Vick's lawyer, arrived around 10 a.m. and left 45 minutes later.

"Obviously we are delighted that Michael is home with his family," Woodward said. "He had a meeting with his probation officer and that went well."

Vick is to be under home detention until July. On Tuesday, the Humane Society of the United States announced that Vick would be doing public service with the organization.

"I sat with the man, but I still don't know what's in his heart," Humane Society President Wayne Pacelle said in a Web posting. 'He told me he did terrible things to dogs. He said he grew up with dogfighting as a boy, and that he never sufficiently questioned it as he grew into manhood."
