An over reaction by the cops, or just stupidity for this young jock?
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,’ 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.

Take one hot blonde Hooters waitress, add a high profile NFL quarterback who JUST GOT MARRIED, and add a dash of inappropriate sexting and you have all the makings of a world class scandal . . . assuming it’s all true, of course.
You can see the pictures and read the full story from our friends at BustedCoverage.com. (We wouldn’t be surprised if TMZ Sports is all over this soon.) The real question is: who’s going to pay big money for pics of RG3′s weiner?
Merdith Barber, a self-professed Redskins fan, is the VCU student who posted texts she says came from RG3 on his wedding day (July 6). She contacted us yesterday to clarify some information in our Sunday post and eventually went into saleswoman mode to get us to buy what she says are “inappropriate” photos RG3 sent to her. A wild negotiation started via email and @Mere__eventually broke off the conversation when our offer of $500, for everything but the dick pics, wasn’t to her liking.

No, you probably don’t remember Monty R. Grow from his days playing for the Gators, but local police spotted him right away as the guy who left his kid in a car so he could go to a strip club.
Unfortunately, he’s not the first man–or first former jock–to do this. Why don’t they just set up day car centers at gentlemen’s clubs? Problem solved!
Thanks to WTSP for the story.
A former University of Florida linebacker was arrested for child abuse after police say he left a 3-year-old girl in his car alone while he went into a strip club. Deputies say when they got to the scene, the child’s grandparents were already there and had removed the child from the vehicle. An investigation revealed 41-year-old Monty R. Grow of Redington Beach had driven the car into the Drive Time parking lot and left the girl unattended in the vehicle while he went inside the Diamond Dolls strip club around 9:48 p.m. Sunday. Deputies say that as they were investigating the incident, Grow ran up to the car and admitted to leaving the girl unattended. She was not injured. Grow was a linebacker with the Florida Gators from 1989-1993. He was suspended for one year in 1991 after he tested positive for steroids and was reinstated by the NCAA in time for the 1992 season opener.

Nothing like a Heismann Trophy Winner to show up hungover to a football camp run by the most famous family in football: The Mannings.
And we’re hearing that he was sent home by none other than Papa Manning himself: Archie.
Our boots on the ground in Thibodaux, La. — believe it or not, we have them — informed us that Johnny Manziel was sent home from the Manning Passing Academy on Saturday afternoon by Archie Manning himself. Our source, who wishes to remain anonymous because of his connection to the camp, gave us the scoop after Manziel showed up tardy Saturday afternoon after being out on the town Friday night. The Texas A&M star reportedly enjoyed himself a little too much Friday night and rolled back into the camp at Nicholls State University some time around noon Saturday before getting the boot.

Attackes on soccer referees are NOT uncommon. We’ve chronicled a few a them over the years.
But usually they get punched or kicked by angry players, coaches or fans. This poor guy in Kenya though, first was allegedly kicked and hit by members of a youth soccer team (kids!)and then grabbed by the coach. And by “grabbed” we mean by the testicles and pulled down on.
Apparently hard enough to cause some severe pain in his, uh, “areas” according to published reports, which resulted in his inability to have normal relations with Mrs. Referee.
So, of course, he’s suing the soccer league for nearly a quarter of a million dollars, which will pay for a lot of groin ice packs.
Referee Martin Wekesa said he was seeking $240,000 in compensation from FKF after the alleged assault in a game in September last year, when he was kicked and hit by members of the Sparki Youth team before being “attacked in my private parts” by one of the coaching staff. Wekesa said Daudi Kajembe came onto the field and assaulted him after a decision to send a Sparki player off. “He pulled my testicles. He actually pressed them and I was hanging on him when he was pulling me. I was crying and could not get myself out from his hands,” Wekesa said. “I remember Kajembe told me, raising his hand, ‘I can kill you in a minute,’ and came directly to my testicles.” Wekesa was rescued by a police officer, he said, but slumped to his knees in pain on the pitch before being taken to the hospital. He is now unable to have sex with his wife, he claims, saying it is “impossible.” “It is so painful, painful, painful in my areas,” he said.

Some people humor meters are just out of whack . . . or maybe they never had them to begin with.
Take Raymond Ray, the mascot of the Tamp Bay Rays of MLB. He was spotted with this sign at a game the other night.
Here’s more from USA Today:
Most of the time, professional sports mascots are bastions of benevolence, distributing T-shirts and hot dogs to the crowd via cannons, leading fans in cheers, and maintaining cheery outlooks even in the longest and most depressing of games. But every now and then, a frustrated mascot can act like a real jerk. Take Raymond Ray, the Tampa Bay Rays’ blue flurry cheerleader identified by the team’s website as a Canus Manta Whatthefluffalus, or seadog. Raymond purports to love kids more than anything, but in the throes of the team’s long, back-and-forth affair with the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night, Raymond was caught holding up a sign that was anything but family-friendly.
