ND’s Floyd Gets One-Year Probation
Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd received one year of probation as part of a plea deal for a drunk driving incident in March.
The Associated Press reported that Floyd cannot drive for 90 days and, when he again is allowed behind the wheel, will need an ignition device that prohibits the car from starting if his blood-alcohol level is too high.
Floyd, 21, has had two previous alcohol incidents. Irish coach Brian Kelly has suspended the team’s leading receiver but said that he will be allowed to participate in voluntary workouts.
His March arrest took place near Notre Dame’s campus. Floyd failed a breath test and had a blood-alcohol content of 0.19 percent, more than double Indiana’s legal limit.
Last season, Floyd had 79 receptions for 1,025 yards and 12 touchdowns, becoming the school’s all-time leader in touchdown receptions in the process.
With the case behind him and already a part of voluntary workouts, it appears Floyd will be on the field for Notre Dame’s opener vs. USF on Sept. 3. Michael Floyd profile
