Transit Police report arresting a Quincy man they say kicked a woman's service dog in the head in South Station around 4:40 p.m. on Wednesday.
According to police, William Bagen, 43, had a problem with the dog, in the Red Line area of the station, and kicked it in the head while yelling "get that fucking dog out of my way!"
The woman found T cops, who in turn located Bagen on a bench on the outbound side, where he was eating some food, at least until the officers detained him and brought him to the woman, who identified him as the angry kicker. He was then transported to Transit Police headquarters on Southampton Street for booking on a charge of animal cruelty, police say.
Police say the dog was not seriously injured.
