Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison arrested again
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison showed tremendous potential as a freshman. But now he's showing tremendously poor judgment. He has been arrested for the second time in five weeks. This one for allegedly barking at a police dog. Gainesville police were responding to a disturbance outside a nightclub, while the officer was investigating a parked vehicle, Morrison went up to the officer's car and barked at the police dog. The dog became agitated, forcing the officer to divert from his investigation. Morrison then resisted arrest. His defense: the dog barked at him first.
Will Muschamp suspended Morrison and says he will miss at least the first two games of the season. Last month he was arrested for punching a bouncer. Morrison, a rising sophomore, was expected to be the Gators starting middle linebacker.
