A citizen recorded cell phone video that shows Memphis grandmother Leimome Cheeks opening the trunk of her Ford Explorer and letting a child out of dog kennel. A bystander happened to capture the moment on video when the woman was letting a girl out of one of the pet kennels.

Leimome Cheeks, 62, has been arrested and charged on two counts of child endangerment for the disturbing incident that took place in Memphis on Saturday evening.

The Memphis police affidavit told of the grandmother claiming there was no room inside her vehicle Saturday, instead telling the children to get inside the kennels.

According to police, Cheeks said there was no room inside her vehicle, so she told the children - aged seven and eight - to get inside the kennels. For more than 40 minutes, the kids rode in those kennels.

An affidavit states Cheeks admitted to putting the kids in the kennels and drove them from Whitehaven to Collierville then to Downtown Memphis, checking on them periodically.

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

Cheeks was being held Sunday in the Shelby County Jail. She has been arrested for child endangerment. The kids in this instance were found badly malnourished and appeared to be much younger than their actual age.

It's too early to know the details of the circumstances surrounding Cheeks and the children that were seen in the pet kennels, however further information is expected to be released by authorities soon.
