Gators LB Morrison Released From Jail, Kava Lounge Releases Statement
GAINESVILLE- Antonio Morrison was released from jail on his own recognizance Monday afternoon, a day after the Florida Gators linebacker was arrested for misdemeanor battery in Gainesville.
The state attorney's office is now gathering information to see whether they have a case against Morrison-a Freshman All-SEC performer for the Gators in 2012-after witnesses outside the Kava Lounge nightclub say they saw Morrison hit a bouncer in a dispute over the entry fee.
The Kava Lounge released a statement Monday saying:
