Michael Floyd could be in more trouble, with a report from TMZ Sports saying he tested positive for alcohol while on house arrest in Minnesota.

"A rep for the Scottsdale City Court confirms ... Floyd's alcohol monitoring system flagged 5 events during June 11th and 12th. At least three of the events were described to us as 'high alcohol tests.'"

Floyd, cut by the Cardinals after a DUI arrest in Arizona last year, signed with the Vikings last month and has been working out with the team during offseason activities.

TMZ reports that Floyd agreed to take random breath tests instead of wearing an ankle bracelet to practice.

According to the Pioneer Press, Floyd's home confinement is scheduled to end this week.

Floyd's agent released a statement on Friday stating the receiver was drinking kombucha tea, and was unaware the drinks contained alcohol.
