ROCKHILL, S.C. -- On Thursday morning, the York County Sheriff's Office arrested a man and charged him with unlawful neglect of a child.

According to the case report, John Arden Fisher, 38, left a 4-year-old home alone in order to avoid a bail bondsman who came looking for him.

In the report, it states the bondsman got out of his vehicle and asked Fisher to come talk with him, but instead of talking, he ran.

A while later, according to the report, a little girl emerged from within the home where Fisher was staying.

Authorities determined Fisher was negligent in leaving the 4-year-old home alone.

Fisher was found by a K-9 team a bit later hiding in someone's yard.

His daughters were placed in DSS custody.
