Florida LB Antonio Morrison Arrested For “Barking” At Police Dog (Mugshot)


Can we please get the college football and NFL seasons underway before every player gets arrested for something.

In a crime that can only be described as bizarre, The Big Lead via Gator Country is reporting that University of Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested early Sunday morning, and booked on charges of harassing and barking at a police dog.

Morrison reportedly violated Florida statute 843.19.4.

It States: Any person who intentionally or knowingly maliciously harasses, teases, interferes with, or attempts to interfere with a police dog, fire dog, SAR dog, or police horse while the animal is in the performance of its duties commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s.775.082 or s. 775.083.

Morrison was previously arrested on June 16 on a misdemeanor battery charge after allegedly punching a bouncer at a nightclub who didn’t know his name.



Florida head coach Will Muschamp has suspended Morrison for at least two games, after the linebacker was arrested for the second time early Sunday morning for barking at a police dog.

Muschamp voiced his supreme disappointment with Morrison.

“I’m extremely disappointed in Antonio Morrison’s decision making,” he said. “He has been suspended from the team and will miss at least two games to begin the season.”

  • Juris, raff, Thanks for the responses. At least in some cases the taxpayers get something back. But I don’t see it as enough (cynicism kicking in). I doubt that the teams or the league have any skin in what to do with the monolith once it decays and the team moves on. New stadiums tend to displace low income housing and the families that live there.
