Vikings Player Floyd Expected to Appear in Arizona Court
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Vikings wide receiving Michael Floyd is expected to appear in Arizona court after being flagged for alcohol tests that are part of his monitoring for house arrest in Minnesota.
The Scottsdale City Court hearing Monday will give Floyd a chance to make his case regarding the failed breathalyzer tests and one he missed earlier this month.
Vikings officials say they encouraged Floyd to drink fermented tea called kombucha, which he says was the reason he was flagged for drinking alcohol and violating terms of his house arrest.
Floyd pleaded guilty on February 17 to extreme drunken driving. Police say they found Floyd passed out behind the wheel on Dec. 12. He had a blood alcohol level of 0.217, more than 2 times the legal limit in Arizona.
