Star college football player Michael Floyd was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol earlier this week. Floyd, who is one of the top offensive football players for the University of Notre Dame, was stopped by local law enforcement agents in South Bend, Indiana around 3 o'clock in the morning on Sunday the 21st after he ran a stop sign just a few blocks from the school's entrance. Floyd was reportedly asked by officers at the scene to walking and turning around, standing on one leg, and counting fingers. After performing poorly on all three sobriety tests, Floyd was asked to take a breath analysis test where his blood alcohol concentration was reportedly 0.19%--more than double the legal limit of 0.08%.
Floyd was booked into a county jail just after four that morning and was released about seven hours later after posting $500 bond. This is Floyd's third alcohol-related arrest since 2009. The now-21-year-old football star was previously cited for underage drinking in May of 2009, and then cited again for underage drinking in 2010 following physical altercation with several people. Officials for the university's football program announced the following Monday that Floyd had been suspended indefinitely from any football-related activity for his behavior. Floyd is scheduled to appear in court on May 2nd.
