New England Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd will spend time in jail after pleading guilty to a drunken driving offense. Floyd was hit with seven charges, but six, including extreme DUI equal or greater than a blood alcohol level of.20, were dismissed.
Floyd was found asleep in the driver's seat of his vehicle at a stoplight in Scottsdale, Arizona, on December 13.
Floyd, who now is under contract but was playing for the Cardinals when arrested, was arrested with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.217 percent, which is greater than 0.15 percent. But that arrest will also result in jail time.
The Patriots hold Floyd's rights until March, at which point they can resign him.

Floyd was mostly compliant, but denied being caught asleep at the wheel.
The Arizona Cardinals released him from the team soon after the arrest, and the Patriots claimed him on waivers.
The day after the game, Floyd took to Twitter bemoaning the fact that some fans were upset that he received a Super Bowl ring.
Floyd was cut by the Cardinals following his December arrest. He stayed with the Patriots through their Super Bowl win, but he was not active for Super Bowl LI or the AFC Championship Game.
