UPDATE: Brian Kelly announced on Monday evening that Michael Floyd has been suspended indefinitely


Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd has only improved as his career has progressed, which is why Irish fans were thrilled to hear the star announce that he would return for his senior season.  Unfortunately, his decision making has not undergone the same improvements.

WDNC in South Bend is reporting that Floyd was arrested early Sunday on a DUI charge, just 15 months after being cited for underage drinking in January 2010.  Floyd was reportedly arrested by Notre Dame police around 4 a.m. then released later after posting bond.  

Floyd had the best season of his career in 2010, pulling in 79 receptions and totaling 1,025 yards to go along with 12 touchdowns. The Irish had a less than stable quarterback situation last season, but it did not matter for Floyd who now sits second all-time in career receptions. Currently with 171 catches on his career, it is assumed that floyd will catch Jeff Smardzija (179) in the 2011 season.

Brian Kelly, nor Notre Dame has made an official statement on the issue. Stay tuned to CBSSports.com for more as this develops.

Report: Michael Floyd arrested for DUI

Its news because you are on cbssportsline.com and last time I checked Michael Floyd plays football.  If you were on cnn.com nothing will be mentioned of Mr. Floyd.  If you don't care about don't read it.

Report: Michael Floyd arrested for DUI

Can you please wake up! In this day and age you need to finally understand that you can not drink & drive! As riduculous as these laws are, as fascists as MADD has become, this is the police state we now live in. A high profile athlete at a high profile school has to be made aware of this more than anyone.

Report: Michael Floyd arrested for DUI

I would really like to know why this is even a story? Who cares this happens all the time to people in all feilds of work and study. Because he is a football player this is news? I agree this is stupid but not only put yourself in his shoes but your own. How many DUI's could you have had in  your life? Don't say your not an athlete because that doesn't matter, if you want to spin it that way you can say he's an athlete and can afford it. Just leave the kid alone. No I do not have any DUI's in my life and I am way past my college days.
