Woman Arrested For Transporting Children In Dog Kennels

Watch: US woman arrested after children filmed in car in pet kennels

In a statement posted to Facebook, Memphis Police Department said: "Many have inquired about a viral video from Saturday that shows two children being transported in pet kennels in the 3700 block of Elvis Presley Blvd".

WATN reports the children, ages 7 and 8, told police their grandmother told them there wasn't room for them in the vehicle. According to authorities, there was no air conditioning in the back of the auto where the kids sat, and the children told police they were hot inside the kennels.

A Memphis woman allegedly placed her two grandchildren kennels and drove them around for at least 40 minutes.

Neighbors said Cheeks just bought two German Shepherd puppies that she would put in the kennels in the back of her truck.

A concerned citizen shot the video and forwarded it to the police.

A Tennessee woman accused of driving her two young grandchildren around in pet kennels is scheduled to appear in court. She has been arrested for child endangerment. A police affidavit cited by the Commercial Appeal cited a similar statement from Cheeks, who reportedly said "there was no room inside the vehicle earlier in the day". WATN said it attempted to contact Cheeks at her home over the weekend, but no one answered the door. "She's such a nice lady", a neighbor told WREG-TV.

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

"I think she needs some help".

Children's Services and Memphis Police are investigating.
