Transit Police report one man's apparent idea of a joke left one of their canines with an injury - and the man under arrest.
Police say Antonio Brown, 25, of Cambridge, walked up to a K-9 patrol car at the Mass. Ave. Orange Line stop around 7:50 p.m. yesterday and "began to hiss, grunt and bark" at Viktor the police dog:
These actions caused "Viktor" to become excited and agitated and jump and spin about. "Viktor" suffered a small laceration next to his left eye which required treatment from his handler.
