Dixon police arrested a mother of two who was seen driving through the neighborhood with two kids on the roof of her suv sitting inside of an inflatable pool.
Jennifer A. Janus Yeager,49, was seen riding around on Illinois Route 2, just west of Palmyra Road with a blue inflatable pool on the roof with two children inside of the pool.
Police say that they received calls around 3:07 from a concerned citizen who noticed Yeager driving into town with kids inside of a pool while the pool was on top of the SUV.
Yeager told officers that she had her two young daughters ride inside of the empty pool just to hold it down on their way home.
She was placed under arrest for two counts of endangering the health or life of a child and two counts of reckless conduct. Yeager was also cited for failure to secure a passenger under the age of 8 and under the age of 16.
Yeager was transported to the Dixon Police Department where she was processed and released after posting bond.
