Report: Florida LB Morrison likely to avoid prosecution
Florida sophomore linebacker Antonio Morrison likely won't be prosecuted following altercation with a club bouncer.
From the report:
The State Attorney's Office in Alachua County filed a deferred prosecution form Thursday. That means Morrison won't be prosecuted for the battery charge as long as he stays out of trouble for six months.
The incident took place in Gainesville. According to the Gainesville Police Department, Morrison took issue with the bouncer because of the cover charge at Kava Bar and Hookah Lounge. Witnesses later told police Morrison punched the bouncer in the head, though Morrison described the incident to police as a "scuffle" that "wasn't that big of a deal."
Morrison started three games as a freshman in 2012 and appeared in every game, recording 34 tackles -- the most among Gators freshmen. He is expected to be team's starting middle linebacker in the fall.
