Blind man facing condo fines over guide dog

A blind man is fighting complaints and fines at his west suburban condo building because of his guide dog.

Tim Spencer is blind because of a rare cancer of the retina. His black Labrador, Iggy, is apparently barking too much and too loudly for other tenants. And they've complained about the noise.

Spencer now faces $300 in fines for violating condo rules.

An attorney for the association said the family faces a hearing to try to resolve dispute.

Spencer claims the allegations and fines are unfounded.
