Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd has had a mediocre season on the field and now he’s landed in trouble off of it.

The Scottsdale Police Department said, via, that Floyd was arrested at 2:48 a.m. on Monday after being found asleep behind the wheel of his running car at an intersection in the Arizona city. Floyd was charged with two counts of DUI and one count of obstructing a roadway and failure to obey a police officer before being released later on Monday morning.

It’s not the first time Floyd has run into legal trouble because of driving under the influence. He was briefly suspended while at Notre Dame in 2011 after being stopped for running a stop sign and then arrested when police determined he had a blood alcohol content of twice the legal limit. His suspension from the team did not include missing any games.

Floyd is set to be a free agent after this season. He has 33 catches for 446 yards and four touchdowns this season and caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins in Miami.
