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.

Taunting a police dog officer is considered a third-degree felony charge in Pennsylvania.
