ROCK HILL, S.C. - A man was arrested in Rock Hill after deputies said he put fishing line across a road and hurt two people on a moped.

Deputies said when they arrived at Adnah Hills Avenue, they found a man and a woman wrapped in fishing line. The man’s lip was cut.
 
The fishing line ran from the intersection of Adnah Hills Avenue and Clayton Avenue to a home at 144 Adnah Hills Ave.
 
Deputies confronted Jerry and Steven McClure at the home. Steven McClure told deputies his brother came running into the house after the incident and threw a fishing pole behind the couch.
 
Jerry McClure told deputies he was tired of the couple riding up and down the road with their mopeds. He told deputies he put the fishing line up loosely and intended it as a joke.
 
Deputies placed Jerry McClure under arrested and charged him with two counts of third-degree assault and battery.
