GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison is accused of punching a bouncer and has been charged with simple battery. He was arrested at his dormitory.
Gainesville Police say witnesses identified Morrison as the man who argued with a bouncer outside Kava Lounge early Sunday regarding a cover charge and said: ``Do you know who I am? I am a UF football player. I am Antonio!''
When the bouncer told Morrison he would have to pay full price, witnesses say Morrison punched the bouncer in the head. Police say the bouncer and a witness identified Morrison from the school's website. Officers say Morrison told them he got into a ``scuffle,'' but added ``it wasn't that big of a deal.''
Morrison is a sophomore from Bolingbrook, Ill. He is expected to be a full-time starter this fall.
