DIXON, Ill. (WSET) -- A mother has been arrested in Illinois after she was seen driving around with two kids on the roof of her car....inside of an inflatable pool.

The Dixon Police Department said 49-year-old Jennifer A. Janus Yeager was arrested on Tuesday, July 9 around 3 p.m. after a 'concerned citizen' saw her driving with the kids on the roof of her vehicle.

Officers searched the area and found her driving with a blue inflatable pool on the roof of her car with two kids inside.

Police said their officers pulled her over where they learned that she had driven into town to inflate the pool at a friend's house and had her two daughters ride inside the empty pool to hold it down on their drive home.

Yeager has been charged with two counts of Endangering the Health or Life of a Child and two counts of Reckless Conduct.
