WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - An official in Worcester is responding after a security guard hired by the city was accused of berating dog walkers in a park where canines are barred.

Public Works Commissioner Paul Moosey tells the Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/1dLF0aN ) that his orders were to politely remind people of the rules of the park.

Some dog walkers at Boynton Park complained of being yelled at and harassed by a security guard who drove his SUV on to the park.

The guard has reportedly said he was following orders.

Moosey says he is looking into the claims, adding that city officials are just trying to create a safe atmosphere at the park and others where there have been problems with drug abuse.
