Jailed American football star MICHAEL VICK has reportedly been approved for release to home confinement.
The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback, 28, is currently serving a 23-month sentence following his 2007 conviction for criminal conspiracy, stemming from allegations he bankrolled a dog fighting operation from a home he owned in Virginia.
He was scheduled for release on 20 July (09) but could be released to his Virginia home as soon as 21 May (09), according to various internet reports.
Vick will reportedly be on an electronic monitoring system and will only be allowed to leave the premises of his home upon approval of his probation officer.
