Video of Florida Gators’ Antonio Morrison’s arrest surfaces; charges to be dropped


Florida Gators linebacker Antonio Morrison was suspended by the team after a weekend arrest that came because of barking at a police dog. The good news for Morrison is that it is believed the charges may not hold up and he could get away with his love for barking.

However, a Florida attorney, Huntley Johnson, told USA Today’s Dan Wolken he expects the charges against Morrison to be dropped.

Morrison was charged with “interfering with police by harassing a police animal”, but he should have received a warning rather than being arrested. It is his second arrest of the summer with the first taking place June 16 on charges of simple battery.

Here is video of Morrison’s most recent arrest that was obtained by The Gainesville Sun:

The sophomore linebacker will miss at least the first two games of the season due to a suspension from head coach Will Muschamp. Whether or not he returns after the team’s bye week remains to be seen, but the fact that charges will be dropped can only help his case.
