Raiders player may be charged with taunting a police dog


The Raiders are re-embracing their renegade ways. Sort of.

According to WTAE-TV, linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong could be facing charges arising from an incident with a police dog during Sunday’s game between Oakland and Pittsburgh at Heinz Field. He reportedly “lifted his shirt, pounded on his chest and began barking at the dog as he was heading toward the field for the game.”

Per the report, taunting a police dog is a third-degree felony in Pennsylvania. Allegheny County Chief Deputy Kevin Kraus was scheduled to meet on Tuesday with prosecutors regarding the possibility of charges against Armstrong.

At the University of Miami, Armstrong was kicked out of school for failing to be honest in an internal investigation.
