Yep, almost 2-and-a-half times the limit (.19 & .08). It's actually his third alcohol-related offense since joining the team - one of them was back in Minneapolis.
I've copied the recent posts to Coach Kelly's thread
- which is a better place for ongoing discussion.
I'll close this thread temporarily since this is a still in a recruiting forum.
In June, St. Joseph County Magistrate Brian Steinke gave Floyd a one-year jail sentence that was suspended as part of a plea agreement. He also said Floyd cannot drive for 90 days and when he does, he must have an ignition device installed on his vehicle for six months. The device will not allow the car to start if his blood-alcohol level is too high.
Floyd was fined $200 and ordered to attend a victim impact panel to hear from people whose family members were killed in drunken driving accidents.
It is Floyd's third brush with the law regarding alcohol.
He was cited for underage consumption of alcohol May 15, 2009, in his home state of Minnesota, and pleaded guilty through a hearing officer a month later.
Floyd also was cited for underage drinking in Minneapolis on Jan. 8, 2010. Floyd and Minnesota running back Shady Salamon, who were former high school teammates in St. Paul, were cited after police were called to a fight involving six to 10 people.
