Cardinals' Michael Floyd charged with DUI hours after loss in Miami
Police found the Cardinals receiver asleep at the wheel
Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd was charged with two counts of DUI in Arizona on Monday morning, after he was allegedly found sleeping at the wheel of his car, the Scottsdale Police Department told ArizonaSports.com on Monday.
The arrest came just hours after the Cardinals' 26-23 loss to the Dolphins in Miami, a game where Floyd had two catches for 18 yards.
Authorities found Floyd slumped over at the wheel of his car, which was running, at 2:48 a.m. on Monday. The Cardinals receiver was then charged with two counts of DUI, one count of obstructing a roadway and one count of failure to obey a police officer.
Floyd was released from jail just hours after being taken into custody.
Although Floyd's case still has to go through the court system, if he's found guilty of DUI, he could be staring at a two-game suspension. Under a new NFL rule implemented in 2014, the league players will face a two-game suspension if found guilty of a DUI.
This is the second DUI in the past five years for Floyd. The receiver also got in trouble for driving under the influence in March 2011 while he was at Notre Dame.
For Floyd, who's currently the third-leading receiver on the Cardinals' roster this year, the arrest could have a potential impact on the any possible deal he might lands if he becomes a free agent.
The 27-year-old former first-round pick, who was taken 13th overall in 2012, is in the final year of his deal in Arizona and will become a free agent at the end of the 2016 season.
