Ray Ray Armstrong dogBefore Oakland’s game against Pittsburgh last Sunday, Raiders linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong let off a little steam.
As he exited the locker room he began pounding on his chest. Then, once he saw a police explosive detection dog in the hallway, Armstrong began barking loudly at the German Shepard, while also screaming “Hey dog, hey dog.”
This sent the K9 into a rage:
The dog was going crazy,” chief deputy Kevin Kraus said.
“Bandit was very agitated. He wanted me to let him go,” the 4-year-old German Shepherd’s handler Deputy Maria Watts explained. “I imagine with his training and experience he would have gone to his target who was taunting him. I don’t want to speculate on what he would have done.”
And why are we telling you this? Well, Armstrong is now being investigated for knowingly taunting or striking a police dog. That’s a third-degree felony in Pennsylvania, and carries with it a maximum sentence of seven years in prison
