Oakland Raiders linebacker Ray Ray Armstrong is being investigated by police officers in Pennsylvania after allegedly taunting a police dog during Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field, according to WTAE of Pittsburgh.
Armstrong lifted his shirt, pounded on his chest and started barking at the K-9 unit on his way to the field, the Allegheny County Sheriff's Office says. No charges have been filed against the player.
Taunting a police dog officer is considered a third-degree felony charge in Pennsylvania.
The Oakland Raiders have reportedly been made aware of the situation.
