Memphis woman arrested after driving around grandkids in dog kennels

Leimome Cheeks, 62, was arrested on Saturday for allegedly transporting her two grandchildren in pet kennels in the trunk of her auto.

Leimome Cheeks, 62, was arrested and charged Saturday with two counts of child endangerment, the Memphis Police Department said.

The report also notes that the temperature "reached 95 degrees and there were no vents in the rear of the Ford Explorer".

According to Memphis Police, investigators identified the woman as Leimome Cheeks, 62.

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

A Tennessee woman was arrested over the weekend for transporting two children around in dog kennels inside her vehicle.

Video surfaced after a concerned citizen who saw the unfolding incident took it upon themselves to film the children getting out of the kennels for evidence in case police didn't show up in time.

The woman is being charged with two counts of child endangerment, according to Cleveland 19.

"It's shocking, it really is", Blake told WATN.

Neighbors tells us Cheeks just bought two puppies, which is why the kennels are in the back of her truck.

"I think she needs some help".

Local 24 reporter, Annette Peagler went to Cheeks home and tried to get a comment from her family, but no one answered the door. She seems like a nice lady.

Cheeks was released on bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday morning.
