A judge sentenced Michael Floyd to one day in jail for violating probation from his DUI arrest in Scottsdale last year.

A Scottsdale judge sentenced Michael Floyd to one day in jail Monday for violating probation from his DUI arrest in Scottsdale last year.

Floyd was booked Monday night and released early Tuesday morning.

Earlier this month, Scottsdale City Court confirmed Floyd had tested positive for alcohol, violating the terms of his probation. Floyd blamed kombucha, a fermented tea, for the presence of alcohol in his blood.

The former Cardinals wide receiver was found asleep at a stoplight near Camelback Road and Goldwater Boulevard early the morning of Dec. 12, 2016.

A blood draw analysis from Scottsdale police showed Floyd had a blood alcohol level of 0.217 percent at the time of his arrest, nearly three times the legal limit.

He was initially sentenced to 120 days, 24 of which he spent in county jail before agreeing to serve the rest on house arrest.

Floyd, who signed this offseason with his hometown Minnesota Vikings, will also serve an additional five days of house arrest.
