FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A 24-year-old Florence woman was arrested for allegedly yelling profanities and dragging a girl around an apartment back in August.

Ronquetta White was arrested Thursday morning and charged with cruelty to children. According to Major Carlos Raines with the Florence City Police, a small girl was being taken to White's house by the girl's grandmother.

The girl hid in the car from White. White yelled profanities at the girl, Maj. Raines said, and then grabbed the girl and dragged her upstairs to an apartment in Florence. The girl went to a hospital for back pain and was treated for minor injuries.

The girl's grandmother reported the incident to police.

White was released from custody Thursday afternoon.
