If anyone out there ever feels the urge to provoke a police dog, you should probably think twice.

Raiders linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong knows what we’re talking about, as he’s currently under investigation by the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office for taunting a police dog Sunday at Heinz Field. It sounds absolutely ridiculous and stupid, but it’s true — details from

The alleged incident happened Sunday in a tunnel at the stadium, where a sheriff’s deputy was working with the K-9 at the Steelers-Raiders game. The deputy has identified the player as Ray-Ray Armstrong.

The player allegedly lifted his shirt, pounded on his chest and began barking at the dog as he was heading toward the field for the game, according to officials with the sheriff’s department.

Definitely a bizarre move by Ray-Ray here to antagonize a police dog, especially considering that it looks super cool:

The report adds that taunting police dogs is a third-degree felony in the state of Pennsylvania, so yeah, it probably isn’t worth it.
