Floyd seeks plea deal, report says

Michael Floyd's attorney told the Associated Press that the suspended star Notre Dame receiver wants to have a plea deal in place by the end of June on a misdemeanor drunken driving arrest.

Floyd, 21, was not present at a court hearing in South Bend on Tuesday.

Floyd, who was allowed to participate in summer workouts but wasn't reinstated to the team Monday, was arrested March 20 on a charge of operating a vehicle under the influence.

Floyd registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.19 percent when he was arrested, the AP reported, and he could face up to a year in jail if convicted.

"As soon as Michael and I have a chance to review that, we'll sit down with the deputy prosecutor and see if we can come up with a resolution," Floyd's lawyer, William Stanley told the AP.
