GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison has been suspended for at least the first two games of the regular season after being arrested for the second time in five weeks.
Morrison was arrested early Sunday for barking at a police dog and resisting arrest. Both charges are misdemeanors.
The sophomore from Bolingbrook, Ill., also was arrested June 16 for allegedly 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, when a judge released him on his own recognizance.
Gators coach Will Muschamp announced later that Morrison would be held out of the opener against Toledo (Aug. 31) and the road game the next week against Miami.
