Newly Released Video Of Patriots Wide Receiver Michael Floyd's DUI Incident

Floyd, who weighs 220 pounds, likely had to consume a significant amount of alcohol to generate a BAC reading that high, since alcohol percentage in the blood is influenced mainly by body weight. Floyd appeared initially disoriented and had trouble following the instructions he was given by the officer.

National Football League announces 2017 Pro Bowl rosters: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was selected to his 11th career Pro Bowl - most among active players - and Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald made the NFC roster for an eighth time. Shortly after his arrest, he was released by the Arizona Cardinals, and he was picked up by the New England Patriots a few days later.

The footage - one of 14 clips that show Floyd's arrest from his initial discovery to his confinement at the police station - starts at around 3am with the officer in his auto behind Floyd's vehicle, which is stopped at a light.

The 3-1/2-minute video starts behind Floyd's video with the vehicle not moving at an intersection.

Floyd played for the Arizona Cardinals at the time, but the team released him two days after his arrest.

He was suspended indefinitely from Notre Dame in March 2011 when he was arrested while driving drunk.

"We were aware of the situation before we claimed him", Belichick said.

Floyd returned to Arizona from Miami earlier that day, after a Sunday match against the Dolphins, which his team lost 26-23.

Floyd practiced with the Patriots on Wednesday, before which Coach Bill Belichick said that the team was "aware of the situation" with Floyd when it claimed him. Obviously, I think for us as players, our goal is going to be on being prepared to play on Saturday, and that's something we've just got to focus on.

Floyd was a first-round pick, taken 13th overall in 2012.
