LONDON, England (Reuters) -- A blind man has been arrested in Scotland after witnesses reported he sank his teeth into his guide dog and kicked her across the road, police said on Thursday.
The incident allegedly occurred outside a busy shopping center in the Scottish capital Edinburgh.
David Todd, 34, is expected to face charges of cruelty to animals and breach of the peace.
A police spokeswoman said the 8-year old dog had been handed over to a charity dedicated to guide dogs.
"When we took her into custody, she had no apparent injuries," she added.
