Patriots wide receiver sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to extreme DUI

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (WHDH) — Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd was sentenced to prison Friday after pleading guilty to an extreme DUI charge.

Floyd, 27, was sentenced to 120 days, though he will only be required to serve 24 days in jail.

A judge ruled that he can serve 80 percent of the sentence under home confinement. Floyd was also fined $5,000.

Floyd was found asleep in the driver’s seat of his car at a stoplight in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Dec. 13.

The football player was charged with driving under the influence after refusing to take a breathalyzer test.

In a video released by police, officers banged on Floyd’s car window to wake him up and then ordered him to turn off the car.

Floyd was mostly compliant, but denied being caught asleep at the wheel. The arresting officer appeared to not know who Floyd was until finding his identification. Police counted $666 in cash that the football player was carrying on him at the time of the arrest.

When asked if there was alcohol in the car or if he had drank while driving, Floyd replied, “Nothing to drink, no sir.”
