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

A Tennessee woman was arrested after a video apparently showed her letting children out of pet kennels in the back of a parked vehicle. According to Memphis police, Leimome Cheeks, 62, said there was no room inside her auto, so she told the seven and eight-year-olds to get inside the kennels.

She told them to sit in the kennels, usually occupied by her two puppies, for the 25 mile journey because there was no room in the back of the auto.

She allegedly told police that she would check on the children periodically and "later removed them from the kennel and put them in the rear seats of her vehicle", the affidavit read.

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. And indeed, it was around 95 degrees on the day that the children were seen in the pet kennels.
