LIBERTY COUNTY, Texas – A man who was caught on camera riding his motorcycle with a baby wedged between himself and the vehicle was arrested.

However, Anthony Welsh, 30, was arrested on an outstanding traffic warrant and not for endangering the child.

Welsh was seen riding the motorcycle with the little boy on Sunday by a witness at a Liberty County, Texas gas station. The unidentified person posted the photo to Facebook.

Welsh was arrested Tuesday on the warrant, but could face more serious charges related to what was seen on Facebook.

The Liberty County Sheriff's Office reported receiving calls about the photo and are contacting additional witnesses about the incident.

Texas law says a person must sit on an approved seat to ride.
