NOTRE DAME — WSBT has confirmed star Notre Dame football player Michael Floyd was arrested over the weekend for drinking and driving.
Sgt. Bill Redman, St. Joseph County Police public information officer, confirmed Floyd was arrested around 3 a.m. and booked into the county jail just after 4 a.m. Sunday.
Floyd was released from jail about seven hours later after posting a $500 bond.
Redman says Notre Dame Security Police arrested Floyd at the main campus entrance.
A court date is set for May 2, Redman said.
Floyd is coming off a sensational performance in Notre Dame's bowl win. The wide receiver chose to stay in school for his senior year, when he almost certainly would have been a high pick in the NFL draft.
This most recent incident isn't the first time Floyd has been in trouble. He was cited for underage drinking in his hometown of Minneapolis in January after police were called to a party where Floyd was involved in a fight.
