Vik­ings’ WR sus­pended

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

The NFL has sus­pended Min­nesota Vik­ings wide re­ceiver Michael Floyd with­out pay for the first four games of the reg­u­lar sea­son for vi­o­lat­ing its sub­stance-abuse pol­icy. The Vik­ings’ an­nounce­ment Fri­day gave no de­tails of the vi­o­la­tion. But an Ari­zona judge last month or­dered Floyd to serve one day in jail for fail­ing al­co­hol tests af­ter a traf­fic stop last year. He blamed the re­sults on a type of fer­mented tea called kom­bucha. The case stemmed from a 2016 drunken driv­ing ar­rest when Scotts­dale po­lice found him passed out be­hind the wheel. He pleaded guilty in Fe­bru­ary to ex­treme drunken driv­ing. He had a blood-al­co­hol level of more than 2½ times the le­gal limit in Ari­zona. Floyd will be al­lowed to par­tic­i­pate in all pre­sea­son prac­tices and games. He can re­turn to the ac­tive ros­ter Oct. 2.
