Dixon, Illinois — A woman was arrested Tuesday after she was seen driving her SUV with her two children in an inflatable pool on the roof of the vehicle, according to police.
A news release from the Dixon Police Department says Jennifer A. Janus Yeager, 49, of Dixon, has been charged with two counts of endangering the health or life of a child and two counts of reckless conduct. She also was cited for failure to secure a passenger of the age of 8 and under the age of 16, police say.
Yeager was stopped just after 3 p.m. Tuesday when a resident who saw the kids on top of the Audi Q5 called police.
After being stopped, Yeager reportedly told police she had driven to a friend’s house to inflate the pool, then had her two daughters ride inside it on the way back so it would stay on the roof of the car.
Yeager was released after posting bond, according to police.
