It is his second arrested in the last couple of months.
University of Florida (UF) linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested Sunday morning for allegedly barking at a police dog while officers were responding to an unrelated dispute. His second arrest in two months has taken him off the field for at least two games. Morrison has been suspended for at least the first two games of the season by UF coach Will Mushcamp after his second arrest in five weeks.
Morrison ‘walked up to the open window’ of a squad car and ‘made barking sounds in the window where my K9 partner Bear was located, see ’ the arresting officer wrote in the report. The linebacker ‘spontaneously stated several times that he made a ‘woof-woof’ sound at the dog because the dog barked at him’ after being advised by officers that distracting the dog prevents it from properly doing its job while they arrested him, which he is charged with resisting.
