Memphis grandmother busted transporting kids in dog kennels in hot auto

A Memphis woman was arrested over the weekend after she allegedly placed her grandchildren in dog kennels during a auto trip across the state, police said.

She is now facing two charges of child endangerment.

Temperatures in the vehicle reached upwards of 95 degrees and there was no air conditioning in the back of the Ford as the children rode from Whitehaven, Tenn.to Collierville, Tenn. -which is about a 25 mile drive, according to the affidavit. There was no air conditioning in the back of the vehicle, while temperatures in the area reached about 95 degrees.

The children told police there was no room inside of the truck earlier in the day so their grandmother told them to get in the kennel.

'Leimome Cheeks was interviewed and admitted to riding from Whitehaven to Collierville with the children in the kennel, ' read a police affidavit cited by Cleveland 19 News.

"I'm still shocked. I really can't see her doing that".

In the video, a child is seen climbing out of the trunk of the vehicle from the kennel.

"I think she needs some help". The attention grew so rabid that the Memphis Police Department issued a statement on Facebook saying they had been contacted by many people since the video went viral on social media. "She's such a nice lady", a neighbor told WREG-TV. Something is going on with her. "Cheeks further advised they also drove downtown, however she checked on the children periodically and later removed them from the kennel and put them in the rear seats of her her vehicle".

Police said the children were OK after the incident.
