Antonio Morrison is having great difficulty staying off Gainesville, FL, police blotters these days. What’s more, the Florida linebacker is winding up on there in bizarre fashion.
Antonio Morrison was arrested last night for barking at the police dog. Morrison was released later last night. The incident was 12 A.M.

More officially, Morrison was arrested for “harassing a police animal and resisting an officer without violence.” While a ridiculous thing to be arrested for, this comes approximately one month after Morrison was arrested outside a Gainesville nightclub for punching a bouncer after he didn’t recognize Morrison’s proclamation of “Don’t you know who I am? I am a football player! I am Antonio!”
Even more priceless: Morrison’s defense, according to the police report, was that the dog barked first.
When it comes to Florida football player arrests, you can’t even make this stuff up.
