Son found on road, mother arrested



A Greenwood mother was arrested after motorists found her child wandering along County Line Road.

The 2-year-old child was found on the road alone Wednesday morning, wearing a dirty diaper and holding a bottle of cough medicine, a Greenwood Police Department report said.

Emily Hommel, 21, 316 Camby St., was arrested on a charge of neglect of a dependent.

A motorist driving along County Line Road near Westminster Row, which is west of U.S. 31, called police shortly before 10 a.m. Wednesday after seeing the child in the middle of the roadway. The driver stopped and got the child away from the road, and other drivers stopped to help, the report said.
