No one consumes Kombucha tea without knowledge that it contains alcohol.

No. He's a football player, not a school bus driver.

other than, could it happen again and the investment in him becomes a waste?

isnt it redundant to ask, giving that the investment is ruined if anyone does this?

That is, even with including his history..?

it's not redundant to ask, it's prudent. it's about risk aversion.

because obviously someone with a repeated history of alcohol abuse and driving is more of a risk to potentially re-offend than any player on a team with no prior history.

doesn't that make sense, or is your question about something else?

Then its likely a cover up.

But more importantly, wouldn't it be wise for him to know what he can and cannot drink, given his situation?

He states the claims are "completely false" though. We won't find out more until June 26.

Looks like the #3 WR battle between Treadwell and Floyd ended sooner than expected.

Floyd says the accusations are completely false, yet he says the test came back positive because he draft Kombucha tea. So, which story is she going with?
Kombucha tea contains alcohol, which is no secret. Also, as the husband of an alcoholic, I've learned that it's very common among alcoholics to drink this tea because it has enough alcohol content to get them buzzed without the appearance of drinking alcohol.

Barring a very lenient court, I'd be surprised if Floyd doesn't find himself back in jail for failing to follow the rules of his house arrest and probation.

I actually had no idea it contained alcohol. But I'm not gonna give him the benefit of the doubt on this. Give Decker a one year prove it deal!

It was news to me.

It's possible Floyd didn't know kombucha contains alcohol. That would explain why he said the accusations were false. His agent was the one who said the kombucha caused the failed tests.

And who is she?

Floyd’s statement [from his lawyers] reads:

“Michael Floyd started his 96-day home monitoring on March 13, 2017. During this time period, Michael was tested a minimum of six times per day. For the first 90 days, Michael’s blood alcohol content was 0.0 for all of his 500 plus tests.

On June 10, 2017, Michael watched movies at his place of residence until 3:00 a.m. During that time, he drank several bottles of kombucha tea drinks, unaware that the drinks contain alcohol.

On June 11, 2017, at 5:30 a.m., Michael was tested and his blood alcohol content was .055. Michael was tested again at 5:54 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was down to .045. Michael was tested again at 6:23 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was .044. He then went back to sleep and missed a test at 6:33 a.m.

Michael was five days away from the end of his home monitoring. Prior to and after this incident, Michael has not had any alcohol whatsoever since the start of his home monitoring. Unfortunately, the kombucha teas that Michael did drink resulted in a positive blood alcohol content reading. As a result, the Court wishes to hear from Michael on June 26. At that time, Michael will have an opportunity to explain how this unfortunate test result happened.”

If you don't know beforehand you won't notice the alcohol in kombucha. It would also be darn near impossible to feel any effect from it since its such a small amount of alcohol anyway.

However my antenna up a bit on why anyone would binge of kombutcha haha

How much would he have had to drink in order to test at those levels?

Bryan Kalbrosky of USA Today actually did the math to figure out exactly how much Kombucha it would have been necessary for Floyd to consume to attain the blood alcohol level that he did. The answer, not surprisingly, is “a whole lot.”

According to Kalbrosky’s story, the ABV (or alcohol by volume) of Kombucha is approximately 0.5%. For comparison, beer at the low end of the ABV scale sits at about 2%, so even the weakest beer you can find is about four times as strong as Kombucha.

Kalbrosky figured out how much Kombucha a person Floyd’s size (approximately 225 pounds) would have had to consume to get his BAC up to the .044 that Floyd registered on the low end of his tests. Using a blood alcohol calculator, he figured out that Floyd would have had to consume 384 ounces of Kombucha.

In an hour.

To help you visualize that a bit, picture a 24-pack of your favorite canned beverage, whether it’s beer or pop. . .yes, pop, not soda. . .or what have you. Now picture eight more cans on top of that. That’s 384 ounces. And, again, you’d have to do it in 60 minutes.
