3:50 PM PT -- According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, cops found Floyd asleep in his 2016 Cadillac Escalade at a stop light. They became suspicious of his vehicle cause it didn't move when the light turned green.

Police say the engine was running and Floyd's foot was on the brake, so they blocked his car and pounded on the windows until he woke up and put the car in park. 

According to the report, cops asked the wide receiver to get out of the car several times -- and eventually had to help him out. They say his speech was slurred and he reeked of booze.

1129-yuri-bradac-bad-romance-youtube-02The guy who let Lady Gaga stroke his golden chin was bad at romance, but apparently worse at driving ... he got busted twice for DUI in less than 2 months.

Burbank cops tell TMZ Yuri Bradac -- who starred in Gaga's "Bad Romance" video -- was arrested for DUI last week after crashing into a wall at a Chevron station.
