Florida's Morrison Arrested On Misdemeanor Charges
Morrison was arrested early Sunday on two misdemeanors, charged with barking at a police dog and resisting arrest.
The sophomore from Bolingbrook, Ill., also was arrested June 16 and accused of punching a bouncer. He received deferred prosecution on the simple battery charged, a deal in which he was ordered to stay out of trouble for six months.
He was back in court Sunday. A judge released him on his own recognizance.
According to the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, Morrison walked up to an open window of a police car and barked at a dog named Bear. The K-9 responded by barking back, prompting an officer to arrest Morrison for interfering with a police canine. He also was charged with resisting arrest.
