TMZ reports wide receiver Michael Floyd tested positive for alcohol during his recent house arrest.

Citing a court representative, TMZ reported Floyd "blamed the positive tests on Kombucha - a fermented tea that contains a very low amount of alcohol".

And failing them: Floyd reportedly had a series of "high alcohol events" on June 11 and 12. "We are still gathering facts and will withhold any further comment at this time".

Following his arrest, Floyd was cut by his team at the time, the Arizona Cardinals.

Floyd, a St. Paul native who starred at Cretin-Derham Hall, was allowed to transfer his house arrest to Minnesota, therefore allowing him to be a full participant with the Vikings. Floyd is not supposed to consume any alcohol during his house arrest.

"Totally false", Floyd said Friday while attending Joe Mauer's Gillette Children's Hospital field fundraiser at Target Field.

He served a 24-day jail sentence after pleading guilty to extreme DUI in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was quickly scooped up by the New England Patriots as a free agent, where he appeared in two games at the end of the regular season and in one in the playoffs. One term of the house arrest was that he not drink, and Floyd was subject to random alcohol screenings, according to TMZ, which first reported Floyd's violation.

Floyd flatly denied that this alleged drinking to Pioneer Press reporter Brian Murphy. Floyd also spent time in jail as part of the sentencing for the alcohol-related arrest.

"The whole thing is false", Floyd said".

Spotrac noted the Vikings can release Floyd without leaving any dead cap space.

After being cut by the Cardinals, the New England Patriots gave Floyd a second chance by claiming him off waivers on December 15.
