South Bend, IN (Sports Network) - Suspended Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd has reportedly been put on probation for one year.

According to the South Bend Tribune, Floyd pleaded guilty Wednesday in St. Joseph County Traffic and Misdemeanor Court to one count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He was arrested March 20 on Notre Dame's campus.

In addition, the Tribune reported Floyd's driver's license will be suspended for 90 days, and he must use an ignition interlock device for six months once he gets the license back. The report said Floyd must attend a Victim Impact Panel.

He had faced a maximum sentence of one year in jail.

Notre Dame's leading receiver last season, Floyd was suspended by head coach Brian Kelly following his arrest. But earlier this month, Kelly permitted Floyd to participate in voluntary summer workouts and conditioning exercises.

According to court documents, Notre Dame police stopped a car that ran a stop sign at Notre Dame Avenue and Holy Cross Drive. The filing alleges that Floyd failed three field sobriety tests and agreed to take a certified breath test, registering a blood-alcohol content of 0.19 -- more than twice Indiana's legal limit of 0.08.

A release from the St. Joseph County Prosecutor's office said that Floyd, 21, was then arrested around 3:18 a.m.

Floyd announced in January he would return for his senior season, rather than jump to the NFL.
