Floyd was busted December 12 at about 3 a.m. in Scottsdale, Arizona, two days after he was cut from the Cardinals football team.

Police found him asleep behind the wheel of the SUV, which was still running, at an intersection. An officer knocks on the window with his flashlight, then his fist in an effort to wake him up.

Once Floyd woke up, he appeared confused as to what was happening. Police told him to turn off his engine and put the car in park.

In the bodycam video, released by police Tuesday, Floyd struggled to follow the officer’s instructions and slurred his speech.

Floyd was eventually led out of his Cadillac Escalade, telling the officer: “Why you gotta be like this?”

“Because you can’t listen," the cop replied. "That’s a problem.”
