GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities have jailed a Travelers Rest man after he was spotted walking naked along a highway and carrying a naked 13-month-old.  

The Greenville County Sheriff's Office says 24-year-old Anthony Michael Hedger is charged with unlawful neglect of a child or helpless person. He's being held under a $10,000 bond, and it's not known if he has an attorney.  

Deputy Jonathan Smith said the office received calls last Saturday about a naked man carrying a naked child on U.S. 25 North while walking into the flow of traffic. A warrant said the man ran into the woods, leading to scratches on the child. Civilians and deputies surrounded the man until deputies arrived.  

An arrest warrant said when deputies tried to secure the child, the man bit the child on the shoulder.
