Source– A mother in Illinois faces charges after police say she was driving her two kids around in an empty inflatable pool that was on the roof of her car.
Jennifer Janus Yeager, 49, was charged of two counts of endangering the health or life of a child and two counts of reckless conduct. She was also cited for failure to secure a passenger under the age of 8 and under the age of 16.
A concerned citizen called Dixon Police Department after seeing the children sitting inside the pool on the roof of the car, while Yeager was driving.
I've never been to Dixon, IL but it sounds like it's a town full of snitches. It ain't your business "concerned citizen", this mom was trying to show her kids a good time and, although the pool is not MacGyver's best work, I highly doubt she was doing 45mph on a main road. If she was, then I retract this whole blog but dammit, when I have kids you better believe we're gonna roll around town in a redneck hot tub a time or two in the summer. Believe that. ALSO, just reading now that the pool was empty when she was stopped by police...what the hell are you doing then, mom? Fill the damn pool before you leave the driveway. I bet you the cops would've understood if there was water left in there. - @Traceahamilton
