Michael Vick's book-signing tour has been canceled because of threats against him for running a dogfighting ring.
The Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback was scheduled to sign copies of his autobiography Finally Free at Barnes & Noble stores in Atlanta, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The March 26 appearance set for Exton, Pa., was listed as canceled on the company's website.
His publisher said he received 'credible threats' and local police are investigating.
'Despite warnings of planned protests, Vick had hoped to continue with the appearances as planned, bringing his story of redemption and second chance to major markets,' Worthy Publishing, the Christian publisher releasing his book, said in a statement.
'However, once the reported protests escalated into threats of violence against the retailers, Worthy Publishing, Vick and his family, decided to cancel the events.'
A person with knowledge of the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, told The Associated Press the signings were scrapped because of threats against Vick and store employees.
