Florida Gators linebacker Antonio Morrison has been arrested again. It is the second time in just over a month that the promising young linebacker has been cuffed and this time it is all because of harassing a police dog. He was arrested for harassing a police animal and resisting a officer without violence, according to the Alachua County jail system.
Morrison apparently began barking at a police dog before he was taken in to police custody:
Antonio Morrison was arrested last night for barking at the police dog. Morrison was released later last night. The incident was 12 A.M.

Morrison’s last arrest came on June 16 for a misdemeanor battery charge after he allegedly punching a bouncer at a nightclub.
It’s obviously not the best look for Morrison and it can’t make head coach Will Muschamp happy. It is unlikely that Morrison will receive any serious punishment from the team, but he is starting to walk on thin ice.
Morrison was named to the All-SEC Freshman Team just a year ago and he will look to continue that success in his sophomore season if he is able to stay away from being locked up.
