Really: Gators LB in Trouble Again For Harassing Police Animal (Updated)

Antonio Morrison/

What is that saying about trouble doesn't find you, you find trouble?

Florida Gator LB Antonio Morrison must be really good at finding things. That's because for the second time in slightly more than a month, he's in trouble with the law.

This time: He was arrested for harassing a police animal. He barked at a police dog.

No really. This mugshot was from said arrest. We aren't making it up.

Morrison, at least of this writing early Sunday morning, is sitting in the Alachua County Jail and facing the above charge and one for resisting arrest without violence.

You'll recall Morrison was already in trouble after an arrest for punching a bouncer at a Gainesville, FL bar.

You can read about our story on that incident RIGHT HERE

He pled and accepted deferred prosecution in the case, which if he complies with the set terms, will clear his record in 6 months.

By the way, he's expected to be the Gators starter at Middle Linebacker this season, which may explain why he's not suspended, though coach Will Muschamp has stated on the record that internal discipline was involved.

Muschamp hasn't commented on Morrison's latest adventure, which we suspect he probably is just learning about. And it raises some interesting questions: (1) Does this violate the terms of Morrison's agreement in the 1st case and if it does, what impact will it have and (2) Is this enough to get Morrison in actual trouble with the football team.

We will see....

((UPDATE---Indeed coach Boom is aware of what happened and reacted. Per GatorZoneFootball--"I'm extremely disappointed in Antonio Morrison's decision making. He's been suspended from the team and will miss at least 2 games to begin the season."

The Gators play Toledo and Miami (FL) in Game 1 and 2 this season.
