Michael Floyd Gets Jail Time in DUI Case

National Football League receiver Michael Floyd pleaded guilty to extreme DUI and faces jail time, Fox 10 News in Arizona reports.

A video obtained by TMZ showed police officers trying to awaken Floyd just before 3 a.m.in his auto at an intersection while the engine was running.

Floyd, who now is under contract but was playing for the Cardinals when arrested, was arrested with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.217 percent, which is greater than 0.15 percent.

The extreme DUI charge wasn't the only one he was facing, but six additional charges were dropped when he put in the guilty plea.

His jail term will be followed by 96 days of house arrest, and he will be expected to pay more than $5,000 in fines.

Michael Floyd will have to serve time for his extreme DUI back in December.

Confused: Floyd speaks in a slurred voice and says he doesn't know why police have pulled him over. Floyd, 27, was found asleep at the wheel of a 2017 Cadillac Escalade.

Floyd was arrested for a previous DUI on March 20, 2011 while he was at Notre Dame. He was not active in their Super Bowl LI win, but will receive a ring as part of the team.

The receiver was released by the Cardinals the week of the incident and was claimed off waivers by the Patriots the next day. I thought everyone would be happy for me.

Floyd was a first-round pick, taken 13th overall in 2012.
