Video: Fla. linebacker arrested for barking at K-9
Gators' Antonio Morrison charged with resisting arrest, harassing an on-duty animal

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The second arrest of Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison late Saturday for allegedly barking at a police dog during an investigation is a misdemeanor but could actually be worse. Morrison has been suspended and his future put in question as a result of the incident and an earlier settlement reached for a June arrest in which he was charged with punching a bouncer at a local night spot.
Gators coach Will Muschamp quickly announced "at least'' a two-game suspension for the player expected to become the team's new starting middle linebacker. State attorney Bill Cervone is looking into the matter, and because it's a second arrest in just more a month, there's a chance the deferral on his first charge after hitting a local night spot bouncer in June could be revoked.
