A Memphis woman is behind bars after a video shows her letting children out of pet kennels.

Leimome Cheeks, 62, has been charged with two counts of child endangerment after she admitted driving around with her two grandchildren, seven and eight, in pet cages.

The children told police there wasn't much air in the kennels and they were very hot. They said they had charged Cheeks with two counts of Child Endangerment.

A Memphis woman allegedly placed her two grandchildren kennels and drove them around for at least 40 minutes.

According to an affidavit, the two kids ages 7 and 8 told investigators they were put in the kennels because they were told there was not enough room inside of the vehicle.

Video surfaced after a concerned citizen who saw the unfolding incident took it upon themselves to film the children getting out of the kennels for evidence in case police didn't show up in time.
