NFL Linebacker Could Face Charges for Taunting K-9 Before Sunday Game

November 12, 2015  | 

Raiders' linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong apparently got into a barking session with a police dog before Sunday's game in Pittsburgh.

Allegheny County Sheriff's Office chief deputy Kevin Kraus met with representatives from the district attorney's office to discuss charges that Armstrong could be facing.

Armstrong allegedly "lifted his shirt, pounded on his chest and began barking'' at the dog before heading on to the field, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

The linebacker offered a "no comment" when asked about the investigation Tuesday, and the Raiders are not expected to comment either, per a team spokesman.

Without having more info this may be a little overkill. I'm all for protecting our K9's but not sure the laws were meant for things like this.

Probably realized that the dog was smarter and better looking then he was. Hope he gets whatever is coming to him and must tell the dog he's sorry. Blues, Stay Safe.

Isn't he a very highly paid professional? Shouldn't he act like one? How many children look up to sports figures and imitate them. How long will it be before we see a news report of someone on the street doing the same thing? I doubt that the NFL will do anything to him unless they are forced to.

This is a waste of everyone's time. If nothing occurred other than the poor judgement used by the l.b. then this is nothing that can be fixed by a citation, and fine.

Having been a K9 handler, if an idiot had teased my K9 and the dog launched and bit the idiot, I would have been responsible for the K9 actions. Double standard once again.

If this incident is seriously being investigated by LE and the DAs officer, it only demonstrates to the public the complete ineptitude of the departments. They deserve neither trust nor support.
