A couple in South Carolina, was arrested for tying their baby to their moped.
Myrtle Beach Police have charged a couple after being accused of strapping their 7-month-old daughter into a bike trailer and tying it to the trailer behind their moped.
The baby’s mother, 18-year-old Bianca Rose Allen, and her boyfriend, 21-year-old Mark Andrew Cherry, were arrested.
A Horry County police officer stopped the couple and asked them why the child was hitched to the trailer. Allen said that she did not know that they could not take the child to the store with them in that manner.
Police said that the trailer was attached to the moped with nylon rope, which was beginning to tear.
Allen and Cherry were charged with unlawful neglect of a child or helpless person by legal custodian. They were released from jail after posting a $5,000 bond.
The child is in the custody of her grandmother.
