A young child was found walking near a busy road wearing only a diaper while the man supposed to be watching the child was asleep, according to Spartanburg County deputies.

According to the deputy's report, a woman leaving a home on Eastland Drive in the Greer area heard a squeal and saw a small child walking in the street on Thursday.

The woman got the child out of the road and then police and paramedics arrived, the report stated.

The child was taken to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center with a fever of 101 and checked out, deputies said. The report stated that they were able to determine child came from a residence along Ridgewood Drive where deputies said they found Chuck Satterfield II, 26, asleep in an outbuilding.

Satterfield told deputies he did not know why the child would be walking around and was not supposed to watch him, but when deputies called the child's mother, she said she was at work and Satterfield was supposed to be watching the child, according to the report.

Satterfield was arrested and charged with unlawful neglect of a child.
