Karen Robinson and a friend stopped at a Dunkin' Donuts at 1411 E. 53rd St. for a smoothie. After repeatedly hearing 'hey, hey, hey' she felt a man touch her on the shoulder and tell her she would need to take Hampton, her black labrador retriever, outside, Robinson said.
"I said, 'No, I don't.' Then he said it again. I said 'I'm visually impaired . . . he is a service dog.' . . . I cited the service dog laws that allow it to be there," Robinson said.
"He said, 'I understand your needs, but you have to tie your dog up outside.' And I told him, 'There's a better chance of tying you up there than me tying this dog up there.' "
Police were called, and the argument continued, with the officers telling her the business had a right to refuse service to anyone they want, she said.
