They said it couldn't be done, but Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison may have just invented a new way of getting arrested. Morrison was arrested Sunday morning for allegedly harassing a police dog while barking at it. Yes, that is actually a crime. At least it is when the police officer paired with the dog is in the middle of handling an incident.

"Morrison, a 19-year-old sophomore, was arrested early Sunday morning after Gainesville police said that he was a bystander at an incident outside a downtown bar. He began barking at and harassing a police dog, according to a police report.

“I’m extremely disappointed in Antonio Morrison’s decision making," Coach Will Muschamp said on the UF Twitter account Sunday. "He has been suspended from the team and will miss at least two games to begin the season.”

Morrison has been formally charged with " interfering with a police animal and resisting arrest without violence." Both are second-degree misdemeanor. He had recently been arrested last month after allegedly assaulting a bouncer.
