GATOR OF THE WEEK SO FAR

Antonio Morrison, a University of Florida linebacker who was arrested last month after police said he punched a bouncer, is in legal trouble again. This time deputies say he interfered with an investigation by barking at a police K-9.

I'm worried about the precedent here. What if a dog barking at a man was considered evidence of malicious intent? All kinds of complications there.

Dog: "Arf, arf! Disclaimer: my barking at you is not to be construed as intent to bite, chew, masticate, or otherwise inflict dental assault upon your person, except in cases where you have previously displayed similar intent with regard to myself or others in the vicinity or in which I have reasonable cause to ... um, lost my train of thought, there. Oh, well. Arf, arf!"

if this took place during a game he'd be accused of ruffing the passer

I call illegal use of puns on ligirl.

And *snork* as well.

Blame it on Antonio's fiery Latin temperament.

Teasing a trained police dog.

Arf with his head!

Wait, don't the police usually charge people when they refuse to talk to police officers, not when they do talk to them?

There's a reason for the phrase "barking mad".

You combine the intellectual strength of the officers and the citizen, and the smartest entity on scene is the dog.

He's a Dog Whisperer.
Only loud.
