(Alachua County Jail)Antonio Morrison, Florida’s starting middle linebacker, was arrested in June for punching a bouncer at a club and shouting “I am Antonio!”. Surely, Morrison would just rely on the legal wizardry of defense attorney Huntley Johnsonand be on his best behavior all summer.

Not quite.

Last night Morrison, 19, was arrested for barking at a police dog. For real. That’s a thing.

According to the police report, Morrison was a bystander outside a late-night Gainesville club when police responded to a disturbance at 4:15 a.m. Sunday morning. As the officers were making arrests, Morrison approached a canine named Bear sitting in the police car and started barking at it.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples, Bear is a Belgian Malinois Shepherd trained in drug detection and people tracking, so probably not the best animal to antagonize.

An officer on the scene stated Morrison’s actions prevented the police from doing their job properly so he asked Morrison to step to the front of the vehicle. When the officer tried to detain Morrison with handcuffs, he resisted.

According to AP, Al Sharpton is mourning the death of his mother, but the civil rights leader says he is still coming to Florida to lead a rally for an unarmed black teen killed by a neighborhood watch captain.

Sharpton said Thursday on Twitter that he is on a flight to Florida for the rally at the First Shiloh Baptist Church in Sanford. The rally is being held following the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last month.

Martin was shot by a neighborhood watch captain who has claimed he acted in self-defense. The neighborhood watch captain hasn’t been arrested, and the case is being reviewed by the State Attorney’s Office.

Sharpton’s 87-year-old mother, Ada, died early Thursday. Sharpton says his mother would have wanted him to attend the rally.
