Florida’s Morrison arrested on misdemeanor charges
Question of the Day
GAINESVILLE, FLA. (AP) - Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison has been arrested again.
Morrison was arrested early Sunday on two misdemeanors charges: barking at a police dog and resisting arrest.
The sophomore from Bolingbrook, Ill., also was arrested June 16 for allegedly punching a bouncer. He received deferred prosecution on the simple battery charged, a deal in which he was ordered to stay out of trouble for six months.
He was back in court Sunday, when a judge released him on his own recognizance.
According to the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, Morrison walked up to an open window on a police car and barked at a K-9 dog named Bear. The dog responded by barking back, prompting an officer to arrest Morrison for interfering with a police canine. According to the arresting officer, Morrison’s actions diverted the canine’s “attention from my investigation and towards him.”
Officers said Morrison resisted attempts to handcuff him.
Morrison told officers he made a “woof-woof” sound at Bear because the dog barked at him.
Morrison could be looking at a suspension of a game or two to begin the season. The Gators open Aug. 31 against Toledo and play at Miami the following week.
Morrison played in 13 games, with three starts as a freshman, and is expected to have a bigger role this fall.
