USA woman arrested after children filmed in auto in pet kennels

Leimome Cheeks of Memphis, Tennessee, is behind bars after a video surfaced on Twitter shows her letting her children out of dog kennels after locking them in the trunk of her auto.

The news station wrote that the two children told police they were hot in the kennels as there were no vents in the back of the auto, and temperatures soared to over 30 degrees celsius (86F).

There were no air conditioning vents in the back of the vehicle and the children told police they became hot.

Authorities said the suspect admitted that she drove about 35 minutes - from Memphis to Collierville, Tenn. - with two children in dog kennels in the back. The attention grew so rabid that the Memphis Police Department issued a statement on Facebook saying they had been contacted by many people since the video went viral on social media. She has been arrested for child endangerment. They said their grandmother told them to sit in the kennels because there was no room in the trunk.

Scarred by that mistake, Thiem , who was also struggling to keep his first serves in, fizzled out to hand Nadal the first set . The wildest part of it all is that, even at 32, it doesn't look like Nadal will be slowing down at Roland Garros anytime soon.

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.

Speaking to local media, one neighbour said: "Shocking, it really is". I only met her like once maybe twice. She's such a nice lady. "It's a huge mistake, get some help yeah but put her in jail, it's hard to say", Blake said.

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