Florida Gators’ LB Gets In Trouble For Barking At Police Dog

Florida Gators' LB Gets In Trouble For Barking At Police DogFlorida Gators sophomore linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested Sunday morning for the second time in just over a month. According to Edgar Thompson of the Orlando Sentinel, Morrison “was charged with interfering with police by harassing a police animal.”

‘Barking at a K-9 unit’

The report claims the incident took place around 4:15 a.m. ET and states that Morrison was at a Gainesville bar that had police presence when he began barking at a K-9 unit. The incident led to his arrest, and the linebacker was released on his own recognizance Sunday morning.

Morrison was also arrested on June 16 for reportedly punching a bouncer at a nightclub, per Michael DiRocco of ESPN’s Gator Nation.

USA Today‘s Dan Wolken provides an update on Antonio Morrison’s charges:

“Gainesville attorney Huntley Johnson told me the charges against Antonio Morrison will be dismissed this afternoon”

‘Public disciplinary measures’

Head coach Will Muschamp had been uncommitted to taking any public disciplinary measures against Morrison in his first arrest, per Thompson, but the latest run-in with the law could force the program to consider all possibilities.

Morrison is a bright prospect who is still learning the college football game on the field, managing 34 tackles and one interception in his first season in the Swamp, per ESPN. The question for the team now will be whether his off-field issues outweigh his potential success with the program.

Well, aside from stupid, what do you make of Antonio Morrison’s latest brush with the law? Do you think he can sustain a successful football career?

Tim Tebow Wants to Go Back to Florida

Now that Tim Tebow’s departure from the Denver Broncos is a certainty with the Peyton Manning signing, the next question is — where does he go? Several teams have been mentioned as possible destinations, and many teams have inquired about what it would take to pry Tebow loose.

According to Monica Culpepper, wife of former Florida Gators and NFL player Brad Culpepper, Tebow would prefer to head back home to the Sunshine State, where he did so many great things for those same Gators.

Two Florida teams would be good fits for Tebow’s services, and in each case, it’s for more than football reasons. The Jacksonville Jaguars have had trouble selling out their stadium in recent years, and the Miami Dolphins are enduring one of the most disastrous offseasons in recent NFL memory.

While everyone in the Broncos organization is obviously thrilled that Manning will be their new quarterback, some of Tebow’s soon-to-be-former teammates feel badly for a player who did engineer several 2011 comebacks and played well in the Broncos’ wild-card playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Problem is, if it’s you against Peyton Manning, you’re going to lose that battle unless you’re part of a very select group.
