A Tennessee woman was arrested after a video apparently showed her letting children out of pet kennels in the back of a parked vehicle.

The 62-year-old has been charged with two counts of Child Endangerment, Memphis Police said in a Facebook post.

"Leimome Cheeks was interviewed and admitted to riding from Whitehaven to Collierville with the children in the kennel", a police affidavit says. According to a police affidavit, the children-aged seven and eight-said there was no room left in the auto, so they were told to sit inside the kennels.

A Memphis woman was arrested over the weekend after she allegedly placed her grandchildren in dog kennels during a vehicle trip across the state, police said. Temperatures in the area reached about 35 degrees Celsius.

Skylarr Blake, Cheeks' neighbor, told WATN that Cheeks was a "nice lady" and that he couldn't "see her doing that".


The bystander, who asked to remain anonymous, sent the video to Memphis Police. "Wow", neighbor Skylark Blake said.

"I think she needs some help".

According to an affidavit, the two kids ages 7 and 8 told investigators they were put in the kennels because they were told there was not enough room inside of the vehicle.

It's too early to know the details of the circumstances surrounding Cheeks and the children that were seen in the pet kennels, however further information is expected to be released by authorities soon. "If she did that, then that's out of character for her", Eugene Richmond said. "You looking at that video, you see she opened up the cage let the kids out the cage out the trunk of the vehicle, I mean it don't look good".
