Grandmom arrested after allegedly driving with kids in dog kennels

A Memphis, Tennessee grandmother has been arrested after video surfaced (see below) of her transporting two young children in pet kennels inside her vehicle.

According to the affidavit, the children told police there was no room in the backseat so their grandmother told them to get inside of the dog cages.

Disturbing cell phone video led to the arrest of Leimome Cheeks, who now faces two counts of child endangerment.

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

The temperature reached a high of 95 degrees Saturday in Memphis.

The disturbing footage shows 62 year-old Leimone Cheeks opening the grate to a dog kennel that was in the trunk of her vehicle. "I couldn't see her actually doing that", said neighbor Skylarr Blake.

Cowan recently bought two German Shepard puppies, neighbors told WREG.

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

One neighbor told Local 24 it was "very sad because it feels like hell right here now, it's very hot".

Mrs Cheeks had also allegedly shut a seven-year-old child in a separate cage, both of which had an enclosed roof and only a small front-facing metal window.

The bystander, who asked to remain anonymous, sent the video to Memphis Police.

The child walks away and the woman latches up the kennel as the person with the camera pulls away.

Mrs Cheeks is due in court later on Monday.

They said Cheeks didn't have air conditioning on and kept the windows closed.

According to the Commercial Appeal, Cheeks posted a $100 bond and was released Sunday.
