Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

An Upstate man has been charged with child neglect after authorities say he was walking in traffic not wearing any clothes, while holding a child.

The Greenville County Sheriff's Office says deputies were called to North Highway 25 in Travelers Rest on Saturday for reports of the nude man.

When they got there, they say they found 24-year-old Anthony Michael Hedger holding the 13-month-old child.  Both weren't wearing any clothes.

When authorities tried to get the child away from Hedger, they say he bit the child on the shoulder.

The child was taken to the hospital and later released to his mother.

Hedger was also taken to the hospital to be evaluated.  He has been charged with unlawful neglect of a child or helpless person.  He is being held in the Greenville County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond.
