A Myrtle Beach couple was arrested Sunday after a state trooper found them pulling a trailer by moped with an infant child inside.

According to a Horry County Police incident report, a South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper saw a man and woman riding a moped and pulling a bicycle trailer carriage on Dick Pond Road around 6:15 p.m. When they pulled over, the trooper noticed an infant inside the carriage, the report said.

The driver of the moped, Mark Cherry, 21, said that he and Bianca Allen, 18 were coming from the Taco Bell, the report said.

The trooper asked Cherry why he was transporting his 7-month-old child in the carriage; he said he was “just going down the road.” Allen told the trooper that she “didn’t know they couldn’t transport her in it” and that she did have her “buckled up.”

The report also said that during the transport of the child, the conditions on the roads were rainy due to Tropical Storm Ana.

The child was placed in emergency protective custody with a grandparent, the report said.

Both Cherry and Allen are charged with child neglect.
