GAINESVILLE, Fla. -

University of Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested Sunday morning in Gainesville after police said he began barking at a police dog.

Police said Morrison, a sophomore, told them that the dog barked at him first.

He was charged with two misdemeanors-- harassment and resisting arrest and taken to the Alachua County Jail.

Morrison was arrested five weeks ago for allegedly punching a bouncer.

Gators Head Coach Will Muschamp suspended Morrison on Sunday and said Morrison will miss at least two games this season. Morrison was expected to start this year.
