Woman caught caging kids in pet kennels

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

Memphis police arrested a woman after video showed her letting two children out of pet kennels from the rear of her vehicle.

The video went viral, and eventually led to the arrest of 62-year-old Leimome Cheeks, reported the Commercial Appeal.

Temperatures climbed well into the 90's in Memphis on Saturday and the children, aged 7 and 8, said the kennels grew quite hot.

The affidavit says Cheeks admitted to putting the kids in the kennels and driving them from Whitehaven to Collierville, then to downtown Memphis, checking on them periodically.

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

Toronto Raptors to promote assistant Nick Nurse to head coach
He won a pair of championships in the British Basketball League in 1996 and 2000, as well as D-League titles in 2011 and 2013. Toronto Raptors assistant coach Nick Nurse gestures during a game against the Detroit Pistons on February 29, 2016.

Shocked neighbors who have described Cheeks as a nice lady told CBS: "I really can't see her doing that". "For them to be in the hot vehicle like that in cages is sad", one neighbor, Nikita Blake told WREG 3.

The video was recorded by a local witness who wanted proof in the event that police never arrived.

Cheeks is expected to appear in court Monday morning. Officials released her from jail on bond on Sunday, according to WHQB-TV in Memphis. Cheek's longtime neighbors never saw this coming. "Wow", Skylarr Blake, a neighbor, told WREG.

Police in Tennessee say a woman, identified as Leimome Cheeks, was charged after mobile phone video emerged of the incident.

"I don't think she knew because she loves her grandkids", Cowan told Fox 13.
