Watch: US woman arrested after children filmed in car in pet kennels

A Tennessee woman is now behind bars after video shows two young children traveling in pet kennels inside her auto. Leimome Cheeks, 62, was arrested and charged Saturday with two counts of child endangerment, the Memphis Police Department said.

Footage of the incident, which was sent to police by an anonymous bystander, shows the moment the woman let her grandchildren out of the kennels, which were placed in the back of her vehicle.

A Memphis woman was arrested over the weekend after she allegedly placed her grandchildren in dog kennels during a auto trip across the state, police said. It was 95 degrees outside.

Cheeks told police she drove from Whitehaven to Collierville with the 7 and 8-year-old children in the kennels. "She's such a nice lady", a neighbor told WREG-TV.

The concerned citizen who shot the video says that he recorded the video for evidence in case police didn't show up in time.

Skylarr Blake, who lives a few doors down from Cheeks, said he couldn't imagine her doing such a thing. I only met her like once maybe twice.

"There were no air conditioning vents in the back of the vehicle and the children became hot". "If she did that, then that's out of character for her", one neighbor said.

The little girl can be seen getting out of the cage.

'Leimome Cheeks was interviewed and admitted to riding from Whitehaven to Collierville with the children in the kennel, ' read a police affidavit cited by Cleveland 19 News.
