ND's Floyd cited for underage drinking

Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd and a University of Minnesota football player were cited for underage drinking after the car they were riding in was stopped by police Friday in Minneapolis, according to a police report.

Floyd, 19, a St. Paul native who starred at nearby Cretin-Derham Hall, was allegedly fleeing the scene of a fight with Gophers running back Shady Salamon, a high school teammate of Floyd's, in a car driven by Casey Marylee Radcliffe, 20. The driver was charged with underage drinking, obstructing police and driving while intoxicated.

Floyd, who had blood on his shirt and hands, and Salamon admitted to drinking, according to the police report which also said Floyd had gotten into a fight at the party.

Floyd has been an impact player in each of his two seasons at Notre Dame. As a freshman, he started 10 games with 48 receptions for 719 yards and seven touchdowns. Slowed by a broken collarbone this past season, the sophomore still had 44 catches for 795 yards and nine touchdowns.

A call seeking comment from Notre Dame was not returned.
