Michael Floyd violates house arrest, will spend day in jail

New, comments

Floyd was found in violation of his house arrest, now will face jail time.

One of the calls the Arizona Cardinals seem to get right was the December release of Michael Floyd.

After an arrest for a DUI in Scottsdale in December, that led to the Cardinals releasing him, Floyd was under house arrest.

Unfortunately for Floyd, he clearly has a problem. He failed an alcohol test last month, breaching his house arrest and today he faced his consequences.

Floyd claimed the alcohol was a result of too many Kambucha drinks, but clearly the court doesn't see it that way.

From Josh Weinfuss:

"Floyd was sentenced to one day in jail and has to finish the last five days of his house arrest. Floyd can serve the rest of his sentence in Arizona."

The Minnesota Vikings also released a statement standing behind Floyd.

More than anything, I hope Floyd gets himself the help he needs to get his life back together.

Good luck, Michael.
