Patriots WR Michael Floyd Facing Jail Time For DUI Arrest

According to John Gambadoro, the police report from Michael Floyd‘s arrest shows he had a .217 blood-alcohol concentration at the time of his arrest, which is extremely high.

  • Gambadoro adds that this will come with automatic months of jail time, given the strict drunk-driving laws in Arizona.
  • Mike Jurecki reports that Floyd is expected to serve jail time when the season is over and before the start of free agency.

Arizona would classify a BAC over .200 a “super extreme” DUI, which comes with a minimum of a mandatory 45 days in jail.

On Tuesday, TMZ posted the video of Floyd’s arrest.

Last week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Floyd is expected to face discipline from the NFL during the offseason for his DUI arrest last week.

According to Schefter, Floyd’s discipline likely will center on the blood test he took the morning he was arrested for the DUI after he refused to take a breathalyzer.

In the end, Floyd is expected to receive a multi-game suspension from the NFL for this incident.

Floyd was arrested last Monday morning on DUI charges after allegedly falling asleep at the wheel. The Scottsdale Police Department mentioned that Floyd was found unconscious at the wheel of his car at 2:48 a.m. Monday morning with the car still running.

Floyd was charged with two counts of DUI and one count of obstructing a roadway and failure to obey a police officer. He was released later Monday morning.

Floyd, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2012. He played his four-year, $9.972 million contract before the Cardinals elected to pick up his fifth-year option last year. However, Arizona elected to cut him loose on Wednesday and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Patriots.

Floyd is in line to be an unrestricted free agent after this season.

In 2016, Floyd has appeared in 13 games and caught 33 passes for 446 yards receiving and four touchdowns for the Cardinals. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 94 receiver out of 115 qualifying players.

We’ll have more regarding potential discipline for Floyd as the news is available.
