Florida Gators linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested for allegedly punching a bouncer during an argument at a Gainesville bar. Morrison, a sophomore, was arrested early Sunday morning and booked around 6 a.m., according to the public police report on the matter. A Gainesville Police Department report alleges the cover charge issued to Morrison to enter the Kava Bar and Hookah Lounge made him "irate" and he began to scream at the bouncer. Morrison, a 230-pounder, allegedly said, "Do you know who I am. I am a UF football player. I am Antonio!" He then punched the man and fled the scene. Morrison, a prized recruit, was charged with misdemeanor first-degree simple battery.
