WR Michael Floyd Sentenced To Complete House Arrest, Serve One Day In Jail

According to this tweet by ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd was sentenced by a Scottsdale judge to one day in jail for violating the terms of his house arrest.

Floyd was in court today to discuss his positive alcohol tests. The Vikings came to his defense before the hearing. Both Floyd and the team claimed the wideout did not realize kombucha tea contained alcohol. It appears the judge did not care.

Floyd must serve 24 hours behind bars as well as finish the five remaining days of his house arrest.

Barring an unexpected turn of events, this legal setback will not affect Floyd’s employment status with the Vikings.
