A Memphis woman was arrested over the weekend after she allegedly placed her grandchildren in dog kennels during a car trip across the state, police said.

Leimome Cheeks, 62, allegedly placed her two grandchildren in kennels and drove them around for at least 40 minutes in temperatures as high as 95 degrees, according to police.

Cheeks was taken into police custody after a concerned witness shot video of her on Saturday as she opened the trunk of her Ford Explorer and released the children from the kennels.

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

The video drew outrage online. The Memphis Police Department even posted about the case on its Facebook page Sunday to confirm her arrest.
