Antonio Morrison, Florida's starting middle linebacker, was arrested in June for punching a bouncer at a club and shouting "I am Antonio!". Surely, Morrison would just rely on the legal wizardry of defense attorney Huntley Johnsonand be on his best behavior all summer.
On Sunday morning Morrison, 19, was arrested for barking at a police dog. For real. That's a
(Alachua County Jail)
According to the police report, Morrison was a bystander outside a late-night Gainesville club when police responded to a disturbance at 4:15 a.m. Sunday morning. As the officers were making arrests, Morrison approached a canine named Bear sitting in the police car and started barking at it.
An officer on the scene stated Morrison's actions prevented the police from doing their job properly so he asked Morrison to step to the front of the vehicle. When the officer tried to detain Morrison with handcuffs, he resisted.
Morrison was charged with interfering with police by harassing a police animal and for resisting arrest/obstructing justice without violence. He appeared before a judge and was released from jail on Sunday morning.
Florida have since suspended him for at least the first two games of the season.
