A Memphis grandmother is out of jail after being arrested and charged for a video showing her traveling with children inside of two pet kennels.

She is now facing two charges of child endangerment.

They said she admitted to driving from Whitehaven to Collierville with her two grandchildren who sat in kennels in the back of her truck, reports CBS affiliate WREG-TV of Memphis.

According to a Memphis police affidavit, Ms Cheeks says there was no room inside her vehicle, so she told the children ages 7 and 8 to get inside the kennels.

A Tennessee woman was arrested over the weekend for transporting two children around in dog kennels inside her vehicle. She seems like a nice lady. I only met her like once maybe twice. "Wow", neighbor Skylark Blake said.

The footage shows Cheeks open the cage for one of the children, seen wearing turquoise leggings and a blue T-shirt.

Temperatures in the vehicle reached upwards of 95 degrees and there was no air conditioning in the back of the Ford as the children rode from Whitehaven, Tenn.to Collierville, Tenn. -which is about a 25 mile drive, according to the affidavit. "If she did that, then that's out of character for her", Eugene Richmond said.

The concerned citizen who shot the video says that he recorded the video for evidence in case police didn't show up in time.

"You looking at that video, you see she opened up the cage let the kids out the cage out the trunk of the vehicle, I mean it don't look good", Blake said.

Police said the children were OK after the incident.

The woman is being held at the Shelby County Jail.

Cheeks was released on bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday morning.
