Notre Dame star WR Michael Floyd arrested for DUI

Michael Floyd just killed some of the optimism that has been floating around South Bend recently. Just days before spring practices are set to begin, the star receiver was arrested on Sunday for driving under the influence.

According to published reports, Notre Dame security police arrested Floyd on campus around 4:00AM. He posted a $500 bond and was released seven hours later. He now is scheduled to appear in court on May 2 at 8:00AM for the charge.

Floyd caught 79 passes for 1,025 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior in 2010. The 79 catches ranked second in Notre Dame single-season history while the 12 touchdowns tied him for fourth most in a season and his 1,025 receiving yards ranked seventh. After catching six passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns in a 33-17 win over Miami, he was named MVP of the Sun Bowl.

What happens next is unclear. This is his second offense and could subject him to harsh penalties from Notre Dame’s Residence Life, which could result in either a suspension or an expulsion from school. This does not include the punishment coach Brian Kelly and the football program could dole out.
