Former Cardinals wide receiver to spend nearly a month in jail for Extreme DUI
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd will spend nearly a month in jail, after he pleaded guilty to Extreme DUI.
Floyd, who is now with the New England Patriots, was arrested in Scottsdale in December and charged with seven counts, including extreme DUI and failure to obey a police officer. Scottsdale police body camera footage showed Floyd passed out behind the wheel at the intersection of Camelback Road and Goldwater.
Tests showed his blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, at 0.217, and the Cardinals released Floyd following his arrest.
On February 16, Floyd began serving his sentence at Maricopa County Jail. Floyd will spend 24 days there and then another 96 on house arrest, according to court documents.
Floyd will also pay a $5,000 fine and finish 30 hours of community service and attended alcohol abuse classes.
