Biography

Floyd and his brother Billy Joe were among the many locals who worked for Enrique Ruiz in the Everglades, helping the Colombian dealer bring his product into the United States. When former Ruiz employee Joey Bramlette agreed to testify against Ruiz, the dealer had his men kidnap Bramlette's daughter Tammy, hoping to use her life as leverage to stop her father appearing in court. Floyd and Billy Joe were given the task of keeping Tammy hostage until the trial was over.

When Crockett and Tubbs led a rescue mission to get Tammy back, Tubbs attacked a Ruiz delivery being supervised by Floyd as a distraction. During the shootout, Ruiz' men were all killed, while Floyd fled into the Everglades. However, Tubbs chased him down and overpowered him, arresting him for his role in Ruiz' drug dealing.
