Shortly after 4 a.m. Friday, he was taken into custody without incident.

Deputies identified the suspect as Phillip Dale Page.

Page is charged with child neglect, assault on officer while resisting arrest and marijuana possession (second or subsequent offense), according to jail records.

Page remains in the Greenville County Detention Center under $31,000 bond on the charges.
