DIXON, Ill. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - A mother was arrested after letting her children ride in an inflatable pool on top of her vehicle.
According to the Dixon Police Department, 49-year-old Jennifer A. Janus Yeager was arrested on Tuesday afternoon. The department received a complaint from a concerned citizen about an Audi passenger car driving with children inside of a pool, on the roof of the vehicle.
They said that officers searched the area and observed a white Audi Q5 driving with a blue inflatable pool on the roof and two juveniles inside of the pool. A traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle.
