A war veteran says he was harassed and humiliated by an employee of a Houston Starbucks who refused to allow him into the store because of his service dog.

Yancy Baer was visiting the city on behalf of an organization that trains service dogs which are provided to disabled people.

However he found he was a victim of discrimination as a Starbucks worker attempted to force him to prove his disability.
