National Football League suspends Vikings' Michael Floyd four games for DUI arrest

The same day that I wrote about the fact that Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters that he told Michael Floyd that he'd cut him if he found out that the tea thing wasn't true, the National Football League made a decision to law down the law as well and served Michael Floyd with a four-game suspension for his December "extreme-DUI" case in Arizona.

Floyd will be eligible to return to the Minnesota's active roster on Monday, October 2, following the team's Week 4 clash with the Lions. Floyd said kombucha, a fermented tea, was to blame for the failed tests. He was sentenced to 120 days, which he only served 24 in jail and the remainder under house arrest.

This comes on the heels of Floyd's recent one-day stint in jail after a judge found him in violation of his house arrest terms for testing positive for alcohol.

That better be true, otherwise he'll likely find himself back on the free agent market after splitting last season between the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots. "I have no clue", Zimmer said, via the Pioneer Press.

The Vikings signed Floyd to a one-year deal in May, and he is allowed to participate in all preseason games and practices.

Vikings CEO Kevin Warren wrote a letter of support for Floyd, attesting to his character and saying kombucha tea was used by many professional athletes as a probiotic and is available at the team's facility on a daily basis.

"I don't have any doubt why there'd be skepticism, but he told me that he wasn't (drinking)".
