A College Linebacker Gets Arrested For Barking at a Police Dog

A College Linebacker Gets Arrested For Barking at a Police DogUF Communications

The NFL had more than its fair share of legal issues this offseason (not that there is really such a thing as a "fair share" with these issues, but we digress). This time we get another one, but at the collge football level.

Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison got arrested last night for barking at a police dog. Yes, that's actually against Floridian law:

Any person who intentionally or knowingly maliciously harasses, teases, interferes with, or attempts to interfere with a police dog, fire dog, SAR dog, or police horse while the animal is in the performance of its duties commits a misdemeanor of the second degree...

Nick De La Torre's (writer for Gator Country, a site dedicated to Gator sports coverage) account makes it seem like Morrison got arrested for being a stubborn jerk:

Basically, the gist of the story is you don't want to bark at a police dog, or any dog for that matter because—come on—why would you want to?
