Grandmom arrested after allegedly driving with kids in dog kennels

In a freaky story, a woman was arrested for driving kids around, not in booster seats or in the back seats, but in two pet kennels placed in the back of her vehicle.

Leimome Cheeks 62, was arrested and charged with two counts of child endangerment. And indeed, it was around 95 degrees on the day that the children were seen in the pet kennels.

"Many have inquired about a viral video from Saturday that shows two children being transported in pet kennels", the Memphis Police Department said.

One of them, Skylark Blake, said, "Cheeks is a "nice lady" adding that he "can't see her doing that".

The video was filmed by a concerned citizen who passed by.

She told them to sit in the kennels, usually occupied by her two puppies, for the 25 mile journey because there was no room in the back of the vehicle.

Blizzard has not announced any new Diablo games to date, although this isn't the first job opening to suggest one might be in the works.

According to the affidavit, the children told police there was no room in the backseat, so their grandmother told them to get inside the dog cages. I only met her like once maybe twice. "For them to be in the hot auto like that in cages is sad", one neighbour said.

An affidavit states Cheeks admitted to putting the kids in the kennels and drove them from Whitehaven to Collierville then to Downtown Memphis, checking on them periodically.

The kids told police that there was no air in the back of the vehicle, later moving them into the backseat.

The children were 7 and 8-years-old, according to Cleveland 19 News.

The woman is being held at the Shelby County Jail. Their grandmother is scheduled to be in court Monday morning at 9 a.m.
