Arizona prosecutor Caron Close believes the Vikings wide receiver should be behind bars for violating the terms of his house arrest.

Floyd was ordered to attend the show-cause hearing after a review of alcohol monitoring reports indicated the presence of alcohol in several tests. The Vikings say that they encouraged Floyd to drink kombucha.

Floyd received a 120-day jail term after pleading guilty to extreme DUI in Arizona. He absurdly blamed the failures on Kombucha tea. Police say they found Floyd passed out behind the wheel on December 12.

Islanders trade Travis Hamonic to Flames for draft picks
Snow has reportedly had his eye on Colorado forward Matt Duchene , but so far has been unable to make a deal with the Avalanche. After picking up Smith, the Flames took a look at the landscape of the Western Conference and chose to play the copy-cat game.

Floyd was ordered to appear before Hendrix to explain how he violated house arrest by accidentally ingesting alcohol June 10-11.

"When we signed Michael Floyd, we hoped he would show signs of improvement and we continue to expect that he shows progress and a professional attitude", Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said in a statement. Despite Floyd's tumultuous offseason, he's expected to battle for a top-four spot on the Vikings' depth chart at receiver during training camp, at which point his current legal troubles will be behind him.

He claimed to have been unaware that kombucha contained alcohol. At 6:23 a.m. his blood-alcohol content was.044.

Ahead of the nuptials, Andrews showed off a attractive sunset in the western state on Instagram, writing only, "Stop". It reports that the wedding was held Saturday at sunset in Montana in front of a small group of family and friends.

Judge Statia D. Hendrix conducted the hearing in her courtroom over speaker phone with Floyd and his attorney, Robert Feinberg.

"Common sense alone dictates that Mr. Floyd would not jeopardize all of his hard work with only five days of home monitoring remaining", Feinberg wrote in his motion.

Unfortunately, he failed three self-administered Breathalyzer tests, reportedly due to his consumption of kombucha tea, per Brian Murphy of the Pioneer Press.
