Tennessee woman arrested for transporting children in pet kennels

Ms Cheeks can be seen opening the cage doors to the kennels as the children hop out.

The video was taken on Elvis Presley Boulevard near Graceland.

Cheeks, 62 has been charged with two counts of child endangerment. According to an affidavit, Cheeks drove the kids from Whitehaven to Collierville, then to Downtown Memphis in 95 degree heat.

During an interview with investigators, the two kids say Cheeks, their grandmother, told them to get in the kennels because there was not enough room in her vehicle.

The children, ages seven and eight, were questioned by police following their grandmother's arrest.

Neighbors of Cheeks expressed their shock after learning about the incident.

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.
