Report: Floyd tagged for underage drinking

Jan 12, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

The Chicago Tribune’s Brian Hamilton reports that wide receiver Michael Floyd was cited for underage drinking over Christmas break back in his home state Minnesota.

This from Hamilton’s report:

Floyd is among five “arrestees” listed on a report from University of
Minnesota police, who had responded to a call claiming “6-to-10″
people” were involved in a “physical dispute in the street.” According
to the report, Floyd admitted to doing “a couple of shots” earlier in
the evening and had blood on his hands, feet and shirt after what Floyd
told police was a “physical altercation” at a house party.

Floyd, 20, was cited in lieu of arrest for underage consumption of
liquor, a misdemeanor. Minneapolis assistant city attorney Chris Dixon
told the Tribune that the possible outcomes, if Floyd has no previous
record, are a fine, a court appearance or entrance into a diversion
program.

As Hamilton noted in his report, the matter will likely be referred to the Office of Residence Life, which has to give a shudder to Notre Dame fans everywhere.

Regardless of how out of touch Res Life can be, I imagine this will likely only result in a bit of extra running for the sophomore wide receiver. As media reports will likely turn this into a big deal, it might be important to remind everybody that Floyd wasn’t arrested, merely ticketed for underage drinking, not exactly a felony.

UPDATE: The Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting that Floyd was ticketed at the same time as Gopher running back Shady Salamon. The two were ticketed after the car they were in was pulled over and the driver, a 20-year-old college student was ticketed and charged with DWI and underage drinking. Floyd admitted to police that he had been drinking and in “an altercation with a Somali male at a house party.” Floyd and Salamon were high school teammates at Cretin-Derham Hall.

    To marketplace in conditions of quality rather than cost, and in order to differentiate consequently, you need to observe the regular format of the 4 Ps marketing plan. That is, Price, Product, Place and Promotion manifestly you know the principal properties of the merchandise, and the cost, but for place you should remember around the type of people who are willing to give over 4x price of competing product whereas the second-class option may be sold where accent is on cost, your product will be suited to places/distributors where the clients will be willing to pay for high-performance.
