Woman accused of driving children in kennels to be arraigned

Woman accused of driving children in kennels to be arraigned

Leimome Cheeks of Memphis, Tennessee, is behind bars after a video surfaced on Twitter shows her letting her children out of dog kennels after locking them in the trunk of her vehicle.

The children told police their grandmother had them sit in dog cages because there was no room in the back seat of her Ford Explore - adding there were no vents in the back of the vehicle to keep them cool.

Memphis police arrested 62-year-old Leimome Cheeks on two counts of child endangerment after a bystander recorded the children climbing out of the kennels on Saturday.

Cheeks told police that she placed the children in the kennels, but she made sure to check on them periodically.

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

Authorities said the suspect admitted that she drove about 35 minutes - from Memphis to Collierville, Tenn. - with two children in dog kennels in the back.

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.

The two kids are Cheeks' grandchildren, ABC News reported.
