Florida linebacker arrested for barking at police dog (UPDATED)
To quote (via Deadspin) the arrest report:
Morrison "walked up to the open window" of a police car, and "made barking sounds in the window where my K9 partner Bear was located." Cops then tried to detain Morrison using handcuffs, which he resisted. Morrison also "spontaneously stated several times that he made a 'woof-woof' sound at the dog because the dog barked at him," and was "advised" by the officer that "distracting the canine by barking at him prevents him doing his job properly."
This was at almost 4 am outside a nightclub in Gainesville. In a vacuum, this is merely a drunk college kid doing something stupid drunk college kids do. In conjuction to the other arrest, well, we'll see. Morrison was expected to start for the Gators this year. One thing's for sure, he has the lead in Weirdest Arrest of the Year.
UPDATE: Per the Twitter account of GatorZone Football, Morrison has been suspended for 2 games. Florida starts the season vs. Toledo and at Miami.
