According to the incident report, a Bureau of Protective Services officer saw Vick stumbling near the entrance of the garage at the capitol complex. The officer says Vick got into his truck and was having trouble driving in a straight line.
Video released from the stop shows an officer's attempt to restrain Vick, and also records the conversation with Vick and an arresting officer.

He tells the officer that if he will let him go, someone else will pick up his truck.
