Minnesota Vikings receiver Michael Floyd had the remaining sentence of his 96-day house arrest transferred from Arizona to Minnesota so he can begin practicing with his new team earlier than expected, a league source told ESPN's Ben Goessling.

Floyd was arrested on a DUI in December which resulted in his release from the Arizona Cardinals. He had begun his sentence Feb. 17, which may have contributed to his delay in finding a new team through free agency.

The 27-year-old is a native of Minnesota, growing up in St. Paul, and will begin practicing with the Vikings next week when they begin organized team activities. He signed a one-year deal with the team May 10.

Floyd could still face discipline from the league stemming from his DUI arrest and will likely begin his tenure in Minnesota competing to be the team's fourth receiver.

Edmonton police arrest man dubbed by victims as the "hangover bandit" .
Edmonton police have arrested a man in connection with a string of robberies who has been dubbed the “hangover bandit” by witnesses who described a strong smell of alcohol on his breath. Justin James Taylor, 27, of Beaumont, is facing multiple charges in connection with 14 incidents dating back to December 2016. He was arrested by officers who responded to a robbery call near a convenience store at 60 Street and Mill Woods Road, at approximately 7 a.m. on May 14. “This involved some excellent police work from the division,” EPS A/Det. Nancy Ho said in a release. “This individual traumatized a lot of people, forcing some to even quit their jobs out of fear, so we’re pleased to have him charged and before the courts.” He received his nickname after several witnesses described the suspect as having “a strong smell of alcohol on his breath,” according to the release. Taylor faces 20 counts of robbery, 14 counts of wearing a disguise with intent, 13 counts of possession of weapon for a dangerous purpose, and uttering threats.
