A 62-year-old woman, Leimome Cheeks, has been arrested after a video shared online showed two of her grandchildren getting out of dog kennels inside the trunk of an SUV in Memphis.
She has been charged with two counts of child endangerment. Reportedly, the children told police there was no room in the backseat, so their grandmother told them to get inside the dog cages.
The Grandmother admitted that she drove the children in the kennels from Whitehaven to Collierville, which is a 35-minute ride, on Saturday.
With temperatures reaching the 95-degree mark, the 7 and 8-year-old told officers they were hot since there were no vents in the back of the vehicle.
