Warren claimed in a letter to Floyd's attorney and the judge overseeing the case, Statia Hendrix, that Floyd did not know that kombucha contained any alcohol. Unfortunately, the kombucha teas that Michael did drink resulted in a positive blood alcohol content reading.

"It appears he's in violation and he should be ordered to serve the rest of his jail time", city prosecutor Caron Close told the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Monday.

- Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd sentenced to one day in jail and five more days of house arrest after an Arizona judge found he violated the terms of his house arrest for a DUI, according to ESPN.

In a statement released on June 16, Floyd said he "drank several bottles of kombucha tea drinks" while watching a movie at his home and was "unaware that the drinks contain alcohol".

Floyd received a 120-day jail term after pleading guilty to extreme DUI in Arizona. He absurdly blamed the failures on Kombucha tea. The tests were administered as part of his sentencing after his extreme DUI arrest in Arizona last December.

According to mayoclinic.org, kombucha tea is a fermented drink made with tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast. The New England Patriots picked him up for the remainder of last season, but he was inactive on their Super Bowl roster. The Vikings quietly began scouting the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Floyd, who was the first-round draft pick of the Cardinals in 2012, with Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer visiting him for extensive conversations.

"Common sense alone dictates that Mr. Floyd would not jeopardize all of his hard work with only five days of home monitoring remaining", Feinberg wrote in his motion.
