Floyd was fined $200 and ordered to attend a victim impact panel to hear from people whose family members were killed in drunken driving accidents.

In 2009, Floyd was cited for underage consumption of alcohol in his home state of Minnesota, and pleaded guilty through a hearing officer a month later.

Floyd also was cited for underage drinking in Minneapolis on Jan. 8, 2010. Floyd and Minnesota running back Shady Salamon, who were former high school teammates in St. Paul, Minn., were cited after police were called to a fight involving six to 10 people.

Now Floyd said he’s moving forward in a positive direction.

“What motivates me was my family,” Floyd said of changing his lifestyle. “Making sure I didn’t let them down again. I embarrassed them a lot.”
