GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The Gainesville Police Department arrested University of Florida football player Antonio Morrison Sunday morning for allegedly punching a bouncer at a popular Gainesville nightclub.
According to the arrest report, Morrison was with a group of friends waiting to get into the Kava Lounge, when he started a confrontation with the bouncer.
Witnesses say that Morrison asked for a discount to get into the nightclub and began yelling, "Don't you know who I am? I'm a football player! I'm Antonio!"
The linebacker eventually punched the bouncer in the head, which left the victim with visible swelling, GPD says.
Morrison was eventually arrested by police and booked into the Alachua County Jail.
He faces a battery charge.
