  • This is the moment one of the woman’s grandchildren emerges from the car captured by a concerned passer-by

Cheeks told police that she traveled with the children in the kennel from Collierville to Whitehaven because there was no room for them in the vehicle.

The viral video, which showed two kennels and another child by the vehicle, led to an investigation after the Memphis Police Department received a complaint, according to police documents seen by Reuters.

The bystander, who asked to remain anonymous, sent the video to Memphis Police.

A Tennessee grandmother was caught allegedly transporting her grandchildren in dog kennels in the trunk of her auto is now in the dog house.

The video drew outrage online.

The incident was filmed on cell phone on Saturday by a man who happened to drive pass as the children were exiting from the vehicle.

Leimome Cheeks 62, was arrested and charged with two counts of child endangerment, WREG reports.

Leimome Cheeks, 62, was arrested and charged Saturday with two counts of child endangerment, the Memphis Police Department said.

Neighbors of Cheeks stated that she had recently purchased two German shepherd puppies and her actions were totally out of character. WATN said it attempted to contact Cheeks at her home over the weekend, but no one answered the door.

"I really can't see her doing that", she added. "For them to be in the hot auto like that in cages is sad", one neighbor, Nikita Blake told WREG 3.

"I think she needs some help". It's a huge mistake.

The victims were 7 and 8 years old.

The kids told police that there was no air in the back of the vehicle, later moving them into the backseat.

Before the hearing, Cheeks sat outside the court room and turned down interview requests, according to the Commercial Appeal.
