State drops charges against Florida LB Morrison

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The State Attorney's Office has dropped misdemeanor charges against Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison.

Morrison was arrested Sunday and charged with barking at a police dog and resisting arrest.

State Attorney Bill Cervone says the "dismissal is based on the lack of evidence to warrant much less legally sustain those charges and the complete inappropriateness of pursing court action against Morrison ... under the circumstances involved."

It was Morrison's second arrest in five weeks, prompting coach Will Muschamp to suspend him for at least the first two games of the season.

According to the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, Morrison walked up to an open window on a police car and barked at a K-9 named Bear. The dog barked back, leading officers to arrest Morrison for interfering with a police canine.
