Vikings WR Michael Floyd releases statement on positive alcohol test

"Coach Zimmer and I are confident Michael Floyd has learned and grown from his past decisions", Vikings GM Rick Spielman said after the team signed Floyd.

This could mean jail time for Floyd, which would obviously mean he wouldn't be able to play for the Vikings. For the first 90 days the blood alcohol content of Floyd was 0.0 for every one of more than 500 tests.

Floyd, 27, was arrested for DUI on December 12 in Scottsdale, prompting his release two days later from the Arizona Cardinals.

Floyd has recently signed with the Minnesota Vikings, but his future with them seems unclear at this point in time. Before and after the incident, Floyd has not drunk any alcohol since he began his 96-day monitoring cycle.

Vikings receiver Michael Floyd is in trouble with the law once again, after testing positive for alcohol while under house arrest, TMZ confirmed Friday. The Arizona Cardinals released him days later and he finished the season with the New England Patriots. The sentence also stipulated Floyd was not to consumer alcoholic beverages. As a result, he will return to court on June 26 and could ultimately be placed back in jail.

Floyd was at a charity fundraiser on friday and denied the accusations to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, saying that it was "totally false".

"The whole thing is false", Floyd said". While he successfully petitioned a judge to remove his ankle bracelet for football reasons, he failed random breath tests that were substituted in, according to TMZ Sports.

Floyd blamed the positive tests on Kombucha tea, which contains a very small amount of alcohol, but his BAC was reportedly between.044 and.055.

The 27-year-old out of Notre Dame has 3,781 career receiving yards with 24 touchdowns. He cited the fact that "he drank several bottles of kombucha tea drinks, unaware that the drinks contain alcohol", as an explanation for the positive tests.
