Grandma filmed letting children out of kennels

The Tennessee grandmother was arrested this weekend after allegedly driving around the Memphis area on Saturday with two grandkids in dog kennels in the back of her Ford Explorer.

Charged with two counts of child endangerment was 62 year old woman, Leimome Cheeks. Memphis Police said the children were seven and eight years old, and the kids told cops it was really hot in the back of the truck.

When Cheeks opened the back of her SUV, her grandchildren ages 7 and 8 emerged from two dog kennels.

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

Although they agree the behavior is disturbing, some neighbors say something may be wrong with Cheeks, whom they describe as a nice woman of faith.

In a freaky story, a woman was arrested for driving kids around, not in booster seats or in the back seats, but in two pet kennels placed in the back of her vehicle. "If she did that, then that's out of character for her", another of Cheeks' neighbors, Eugene Richmond, told the local station.

The video was filmed by a concerned citizen who passed by. Police said the back of the vehicle did not have any air vents, according to the Commercial Appeal.

Cheeks is being charged with child endangerment, while police and Child Services continue their investigations.

Cheeks appeared in court Monday morning.

Cheeks was being held Sunday in the Shelby County Jail.

Police have launched an official investigation into the incident.
