Florida football players and arrests have been all too common. However, there is nothing ordinary about the reason linebacker Antonio Morrison was busted.
Gatorcountry.com reports that the soon-to-be sophomore was arrested Sunday after allegedly barking at a police dog. Yes, you read that correctly: barking at a police dog.
Believe this: CHARGE NUMBER: 1
VIOLATION CODE: 843.19.4
VIOLATION DESCRIPTION: PUBLIC ORDER CRIMES: HARASS TEASE INTERFERE POLICE FIRE SAR ANIMAL
This is the same Morrison who was arrested earlier this offseason and charged with simple battery after police allege he assaulted a bouncer at a hookah lounge.
According to Gator Country, Morrison received deferred prosecution for that incident, requiring him to pay $100 to the state for court costs, make a $150 donation to CDS Family & Behavioral Services, complete 12 hours of community service, complete a Florida drug and alcohol education program, attend an anger management program, and participate in two hour ride-alongs with UF police.
