NFL linebacker under investigation... for barking at a police dog

Some one please call (K) 911!

OAKLAND RAIDERS LINEBACKER Ray-Ray Armstrong may have bitten off more than he bargained for after bizarrely taunting a police dog – by barking at it.

Police in Pittsburgh yesterday said that Armstrong had been placed under investigation over an incident before Sunday’s NFL game against the Steelers when he confronted a police dog prior to kick off.

Armstrong reportedly barked at ‘Bandit’ the dog while lifting his shirt and pounding his chest as he headed for the field during warm-ups, chief deputy Kevin Kraus said.

“The dog was going crazy,” Kraus said, “the deputy was trying to control the dog the best she could.”

In Pennsylvania, taunting a police dog is a third-degree felony and carries a fine of up to $15,000 or a maximum sentence of seven years.

“Bandit was very agitated,” handler Maria Watts told WTAE Pittsburgh.

“He wanted me to let him go. I imagine with his training and experience he would have gone to his target who was taunting him. I don’t want to speculate on what he would have done…”

No charges have yet been brought against Armstrong, but the Sherrif’s department has confirmed that the investigation is ongoing.
