NCAA: Florida LB Morrison Arrested for Barking at Police Dog

Jul 21 2013, 9:19pm CDT | by

Florida Gators linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested for the second time in five weeks for barking at a police dog.

Florida Gators linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested for allegedly barking at a police dog. 

According to gatorcountry.com's Nick de la Torre, Morrison was arrested on July 20 and charged with harassing or interfering with a police animal. Morrison was reportedly at a club when authorities were at the scene for an unrelated incident. He then barked at a police dog which barked back. The police officer who handled the animal confronted Morrison, who was also charged with resisting arrest without violence. 

The police report states, "K9 Bear immediately began barking at Antonio, diverting his attention away from my investigation and towards him (Morisson)." The Florida linebacker was with a group of male companions who were stopped by the officer at the scene after the dog barked back. As the policeman prepared to arrest Morrison, he resisted arrest. Two other officers arrived later to help take him in. 

de la Torre states resisting arrest is a second-degree misdemeanor in the state of Florida. He also adds Morrison was reportedly intoxicated when he was arrested. 

On his part, Morrison claims to have made a "woof-woof" sound at K9 Bear because he barked at him.  Michael DiRocco of Gator Nation via ESPN reports the incident took place sometime before 4 a.m. He also adds the poice officer's name is William A. Arnold.  

USA Today's David Jones affirms Morrison has been suspended. His future is also questionable when considering an incident in June when Morrison allegedly punched a bouncer at a night club. 

Florida head coach Will Muschamp expressed disappointment over the incicent and announced "at least" a two-game suspension for Morrison. 

"I'm extremely disappointed in Antonio Morrison's decision making. He has been suspended from the team and will miss at least two games to begin the season." 

On July 1, the 19-year-old Morrison agreed to deferred prosecution on battery charges after he allegedly punched a night club bouncer because he was refused a discounted entrance rate. 

He was ordered to pay $100 in prosecution costs and either pay an additional $150 or perform 12 hours of community service. Additionally, he must also complete a drug and alcohol abuse course, an anger management course and take part in two eight-hour ride-alongs with the University of Florida Police Department, per DiRocco.
