Florida Football Player Arrested for Barking at a Police Dog

Was he barking at Raymond Sanders too?

During SEC Media Days, reporters were unrelenting when it came to questions regarding player conduct after Johnny Manziel’s busy offseason. When Will Muschamp was posed with the ‘Manziel Question’, he gave us this response:

“Well, you’re 100% responsible. When you sign a student-athlete to come to the University of Florida, I look at his parents, guardians, whoever is important to him in his life, tell them it’s my job to be an extension of what’s already happened at home. But you’re a hundred percent responsible for the young man. Everything that happens.”

 

It hasn’t been a week and Muschamp is already having to walk his talk. Late last night, Florida Linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested for barking at a police dog. Now I was unaware that barking at a dog could be a criminal offense, but Morrison’s actions proved to piss off the police too much. According to the arrest report, Morrison walked by the open window of a police cruiser and barked at a canine named Bear, causing Bear to bark back uncontrollably. The police had enough, arresting a resisting Morrison on site.

 

It isn’t Morrison’s first run-in with law enforcement, less than a month removed from an arrest after a dispute in a nightclub. Needless to say Muschamp has had enough, announcing on Twitter this morning that Morrison will be suspended “at least two games” to begin the season.

    You can’t spell “Florida” without the “Fido.”. His defense was, and I am not making this up, that the dog barked at him first.

    FL – Bark at a police dog (silly and strange)… 2 game suspension.
    UNC – Multiple speeding tickets while driving a car rented by a felon, dumping a gun out the window, drugs (and I’m probably forgetting several things)… crickets.

    Sounds like a screw is already loose with this kid. Blaming the dog just further displays his stupidity.

    #7 – Arrested for resisting arrest? Think that one through. You have to be arrested for something else before you can get the additional charge of “resisting arrest”.

    I guess you could say that’s disturbing the peace. Maybe.

    It’s Florida, and Morrison is Black, so even if the dog started it, the Dog could have mauled him to death and just been standing his ground.

    14) Only if the dog was Hispanic.
    What a joke arresting a kid for barking at a dog. Doesn’t our country have worse problems then a kid acting like a kid!

    more proof that we have a lot of cops out there with nothing to do. complete waste of money and since cops aren’t smart enough to be qualified for any other job, a complete waste of life also.

    Contempt of Cop is a very serious offense and should land this disrespectful punk in jail. Don’t be mistaken though, if this was YOUR dog barking we would of just shot it.

    18 really? Waste of life? You don’t have the balls to do what they do. Ever been shot at, stabbed, ran over? No you were probably just raped in a jail house so your butt hurt a little huh? They work long hours for little pay because they love it, and enjoy helping others. Your probably jobless and live with your mommy.

    18- I gotta agree. Thank God we have brave boys in blue protecting their dogs from mild aggravation. Dogs are probably a “protected class” so here comes a hate crime enhancement. Gimme a break.
