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

Leimome Cheeks, 62, was seen in a viral video over the weekend letting two young children out of cages in the back of an SUV.

According to a police affidavit, the children-aged seven and eight-said there was no room left in the vehicle, so they were told to sit inside the kennels.

According to police, the children were spotted Saturday afternoon in the 3700 block of Elvis Presley Blvd. near Graceland.

Neighbours told the station that Cheeks had recently purchased two German Shepherd puppies and the kennels were meant for them. That followed a 35-minute drive through the Memphis area, according to CBS affiliate WREG.

"I'm still shocked", neighbor Skylarr Blake also said, describing Cheeks as "such a nice lady". She's such a nice lady.

The children were Cheeks' grandchildren, according to the Associate Press.

Cheeks was arrested on Sunday after video emerged showing her releasing two of her grandkids, ages seven and nine, from dog kennels stored in the back of her Ford Explorer.

Skylark Blake, one of Cheeks' neighbors said the incident was not typical of something Cheeks would do.

The video was filmed by a concerned citizen who was passing by. Johnson said the children were not in the custody of the Department of Children's Services, but the staff is still "investigating the situation".

Mrs Cheeks is due in court later on Monday. Police said the back of the vehicle did not have any air vents, according to the Commercial Appeal.
