Photo of toddler on motocycle goes viral, man arrested

LIBERTY COUNTY, Texas - A man who took a toddler for a spin on his motorcycle was arrested and charged with child endangerment Friday.

The Liberty County Sheriff's Office said a viral photo making its rounds on social media shows Anthony Welsh riding a motorcycle with an infant child sitting in front of him over the gas tank.

Welsh was arrested on an unrelated warrant out of Deer Park on Tuesday, but on Thursday the photo finally caught up with him.



Welsh surrendered himself to the Liberty County Sheriff's Office on a child endangerment charge.

Investigators said he had been hiding out at a friend's home.

Welsh is now out of jail on a $5,000 bond.
