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

Cheeks was arrested and charged with two counts of child endangerment.

The children were kept in two separate kennels as the temperature blazed at 95 degrees.Police say Cheeks instructed the children to get inside of the kennels because there wasn't any room left in her vehicle. However, if Cheeks was indeed driving "downtown", it's hard to know exactly how long the kids were in the kennel.

The incident happened feet away from Graceland.

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

"It's shocking, it really is", Blake told WATN. I only met her like once maybe twice. "She's such a nice lady", a neighbor told WREG-TV.


Neighbour Skylark Blake told local news source WREG that Cheeks is a "nice lady" adding that he "can't see her doing that".

She told police there had been no room in the vehicle earlier and so she told the children to "get in the dog kennels", according to the Commercial Appeal, though she said she checked on the children "periodically".

People who live in this Whitehaven community are shocked by the video. WATN said it attempted to contact Cheeks at her home over the weekend, but no one answered the door. "For them to be in the hot auto like that in cages is sad". However, she claimed that she did check up on them periodically during the trip.

The footage shows a young child casually climbing out of the trunk area of a Ford Explorer from a kennel.

The children, ages seven and eight, were questioned by police following their grandmother's arrest. She is set to appear in court on Monday, the station reported.
