Michael Floyd is heading back to jail, but he won’t be there long.
On Monday, a judge sentenced Floyd to one day in jail after he tested positive for alcohol, according to ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss, who added that Floyd will still be forced to serve the final five days of his house arrest.
Floyd’s ongoing legal issues stem from his arrest in December, when he was found asleep at the wheel of his car at a traffic light. In February, Floyd was sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days of house arrest after being found guilty of extreme DUI. Floyd was less than a week away from finishing his house arrest sentence when he failed an alcohol test.
Michael Floyd started his 96-day home monitoring on March 13, 2017. During this time period, Michael was tested a minimum of six times per day. For the first 90 days, Michael’s blood alcohol content was 0.0 for all of his 500 plus tests.
On June 10, 2017, Michael watched movies at his place of residence until 3:00 a.m. During that time, he drank several bottles of kombucha tea drinks, unaware that the drinks contain alcohol.
On June 11, 2017 at 5:30 a.m., Michael was tested and his blood alcohol content was .055. Michael was tested again at 5:54 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was down to .045. Michael was tested again at 6:23 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was .044. He then went back to sleep and missed a test at 6:33 a.m.
Michael was five days away from the end of his home monitoring. Prior to and after this incident, Michael has not had any alcohol whatsoever since the start of his home monitoring. Unfortunately, the kombucha teas that Michael did drink resulted in a positive blood alcohol content reading. As a result, the Court wishes to hear from Michael on June 26. At that time, Michael will have an opportunity to explain how this unfortunate test result happened.
Floyd, who was a member of the Cardinals when he was arrested, signed with the Vikings this offseason after spending the end of the 2016 season with the Patriots. Since entering the NFL in 2012 as a first rounder, he’s racked up 3,781 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns.
