Notre Dame WR Floyd gets 1 year probation for DUI

Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd, who returned to school because he didn’t get the evaluation he thought he would from the NFL prior to the draft, was sentenced to one year probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanor drunken driving this morning.

Floyd picked up a one-year jail sentence that was suspended, according to the Associated Press. He is currently suspended by the Fighting Irish program. Floyd cannot drive for 90 days and he must have an ignition device installed to his vehicle after that for a six-month period to ensure he is not too impaired to drive. Floyd must also attend a victim impact panel and was fined $200.

The talented receiver declined to comment when he left court. He was arrested March 20 just a block from the main entrance to campus. Floyd will be permitted to participate in voluntary workouts with the team this summer. Coach Brian Kelly said there are steps Floyd must take before he is reinstated to the football team. Floyd has previously run into trouble for alcohol use.
