The video went viral, and eventually led to the arrest of 62-year-old Leimome Cheeks, reported the Commercial Appeal.

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.

"Leimome Cheeks was interviewed and admitted to riding from Whitehaven (a Memphis neighborhood) to Collierville with the children in the kennel, " a police affidavit says.

According to the eyewitness, the suspect got out of the auto and opened the trunk, where she kept two dog kennels.

She also drove to downtown Memphis, telling police she made stops to check on them periodically.

Neighbors of Cheeks have spoken to local news outlets about the weird and abusive treatment. She seems like a nice lady.

Cowan said she didn't think that Cheeks knew she was doing something wrong.

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

Malone says she still can't believe her next-door neighbor is accused of putting her two grandkids, ages 7 and 8, inside dog crates in the back of her SUV.

A video taken by a passerby appears to show a young girl hopping out of a kennel from the trunk of the vehicle after a woman opens the metal cage door. Police said the vehicle was not air conditioned.

Neighbors of Cheeks stated that she had recently purchased two German shepherd puppies and her actions were totally out of character.

Police have launched an official investigation into the incident. The 62-year-old is out on bond and has a Monday morning court appearance.
