RICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ A government official says imprisoned NFL
star Michael Vick has been approved for release to home
confinement.

Vick's lawyers have said they expected him to be moved any day into a halfway house in Newport News, Va. But the official says there's no bed space, so Vick could be released to his Hampton, Va. home as soon as May 21st.

The official has knowledge of the case but requested anonymity because the individual was not authorized to discuss the matter
publicly. The official says Vick will be on electronic monitoring
and will only be allowed to leave home for activities approved by
his probation officer.

The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback is serving a 23-month sentence at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., for a
dogfighting conspiracy.
