A 26-year-old Lancaster, SC man is being charged with public intoxication along with two counts of unlawful neglect of a child after he was pulled over by police while driving a moped. The man told police that he had run out of beer and was going to get more, according to the report.  Also, he told deputies that he had left his children home by themselves.

When the deputies arrived at the man’s house, they found a 6-month-old and a 2-year-old child asleep.  They were unharmed, but officers report the children were wearing only diapers and the house was a scattered mess.  Mice were also running around inside.

The man was placed in Lancaster County Detention Center, and the Department of Social Services was notified of the situation.  The children were placed in the custody of their mother.
