The dash cam of Morrison's arrest is up on the gainesville.com website.

Sadly, Morrison's barking was not captured on video, but what passes for resisting arrest without violence in Gainesville was captured.

Based on what I saw, Morrison will definitely be back for UT. It was a whole bunch of nothing.

Antonio Morrison Arrested: Florida Linebacker Busted For Barking At Police Dog
I agree. The cop was too sensitive on this one, a warning would have been more than enough.

This arrest was complete BS. I thought the Athens PD were bad.

It was stupid to bark at the police dog, but this is yet another example of an overzealous police officer overreacting. Yes, I know they have a tough job and have to make quick decisions, but it's not like they were in a stand off and Morrison was distracting his dog. It also shows how the police can trump up bs charges like resisting arrest. Good Lord. Pathetic. I'd be embarrassed if I was that sheriff.

Yep, assuming Morrison keeps his nose clean going forward...easier said than done...he should be back for Tennessee.

Darnell says warning more appropriate for Morrison than arrest

By*Maru I. Opabola
Staff writer
Published: Monday, July 22, 2013 at 7:14 p.m.

On the same day the Alachua County Sheriff's Office released the dashboard camera video of the Sunday morning of arrest of University of Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison, Sheriff Sadie Darnell said the arresting deputy should have given the 19-year-old a warning for barking at a police dog instead of placing him under arrest.
*
Darnell also said the arrest was a split-second decision during chaos.
*
The video footage does not show Morrison barking at Deputy William Arnold's K-9, but it does show Morrison walking past the vehicle with a small group of males before being beckoned by Arnold and then quickly placed under arrest as multiple officers converged on him. Morrison appeared to tense his arms initially but quickly acquiesced as his head was placed against the hood of the police vehicle and cuffs appeared to be placed on his arms behind his back. Morrison can be seen throughout the arrest turning his head and speaking to the officers.
*
Minutes later, Morrison can be heard pleading with Arnold to release him.
*
“Officer, please let me go,” a voice, presumably that of Morrison, can be heard saying. “I'm not looking for any trouble. I just said, ‘Woof woof.'”

Arnold responded by telling Morrison that his behavior was the reason he wasn't letting him go and that he was not cooperative.
*
Shortly afterward, in what appears to be a conversation between Arnold and another member of law enforcement, Arnold can be heard saying,*“Yeah, my patience is pretty thin.”
*
During her interview Monday afternoon, Darnell told the Sun that she believed the deputy was technically correct that Morrison could be charged under the statute which prohibits taunting police animals, but she stated that, given the obscure nature of the law and the fact that Morrison was probably unaware of it, a warning would have been the more appropriate action.
*
While acknowledging that the arrest may have been heavy handed, Darnell was careful to point out that the incident occurred next door to All Star Sports Bar on Southwest 13th Street. The bar and grill can stay open until 4 a.m. as long as it stops serving alcohol at 2 a.m. and has been the subject of more than 200 police calls and investigations for numerous violent crimes.
*
“Our deputies are caught in a lot of threatening situations and are having to make rational, very well thought out decisions in the context of chaos, and sometimes they don't think them all the way through,” Darnell said. On Sunday morning deputies were responding to a report of an aggravated assault at the scene.
*
Around 30 minutes after placing Morrison under arrest, a frustrated Arnold can be heard on the recording explaining to Morrison the reason for arresting him.
*
“Let me simply explain something to you,” Arnold said. “I've been listening to you for a few minutes, and here's the problem I got with this, all right? My dog is watching my back and their back. Stop talking. When you walk up to the window and say something to him, you distract him if I need him. So if I open my door remotely with this push button, he's coming out to you and not to me when I need him. That's the end of the story. That's interfering, harassment and teasing a police dog while he's engaged in his duty. That's what you're being arrested for. All right?”
*
Morrison's response cannot be understood, but it clearly added to Arnold's frustration.
*
“I'm being very direct and to the point with you. You're not getting it. You're not getting it at all. You can continue to sit here with your crocodile tears and ask me for favors and do whatever. I'm telling you, you're going to jail for interfering with my dog. That's it.”
*
Morrison was arrested on two misdemeanor charges and was released from the Alachua County jail Sunday afternoon, but the area's chief prosecutor said late Sunday that he has some concerns about the legality of the charges.
*
“Based on the initial report, I have to question the sufficiency of the evidence to constitute a crime,” State Attorney Bill Cervone said. “Simply barking at a dog may not be enough. I'll have to look at the statute,” he said, noting that the law calls for malicious intent.
*
Morrison has been suspended for at least two games from the UF football team as a result of the arrest, which is his second incident involving law enforcement within five weeks. He was arrested by Gainesville police after an incident June 16 outside the Kava Bar & Hookah Lounge at 1007 W. University Ave.

Morrison is our best LB, but Easley is our defensive leader.

Charges were dropped and the arresting officer reprimanded.

Deserved IMO, that arrest was a joke

As much as I would like to see him sitting out the UT game, that is the dumbest arrest I have ever heard of.

So over the top, it's ridiculous.

A warning would have sufficed.

Is it a dbag thing to do? Yes.
Is it a roidhead thing to do? Yes.
Is it something you deserve to be arrested for? No.

Second arrest?

Might be time to learn how to sit and stay somewhere.

I got pulled over and almost arrested in Gainesville once. I pulled up to a red light at like 3am, and sat there, and sat there, and sat there. I thought maybe I missed the sensor, so I backed up and then pulled back up to the line. Still no green light, and no traffic has passed anywhere on the road, so I said I'd wait 2 more minutes and then just run it.

So that's what happened, after 6 minutes of waiting I ran the red light. And got pulled over 1/4 mile later. As he's walking to the window, I unbuckle my seatbelt to get my wallet out of my back pocket. So, he charges me with running a red light, and not wearing my seatbelt. He then says " I watched you at that redlight for like 5 minutes, and knew you were gonna eventually run it, it breaks sometimes and stays red for up to 10 mins, it never fails to catch someone running it" to which I said "if you watched me and saw me run it after everything I did there, then pulling me over was bull$&@""

He then made me get out of the car and sit on the curb, and asked to search my car, I said there's nothing in there, and he said I can arrest you now for resisting arrest and we'll still search it, or you can sit there, shut your mouth, and let me search it. So he searched it, gave me 2 tickets, and left.

I have no love for the Gainesville PD

Granted it's the ACC, and if Miami wins their division chances are they'll get destroyed by Clemson or FSU in the title game.
Miami making the ACC title game would be a huge accomplishment in itself. still a young team
