Jackie Denise Knott, 37, from Alabama was arrested for endangering the welfare of a child after police found her driving on the highway with a teenager riding in a box on top of her minivan.
Jackie Denise Knott, 37, of Goldkist Street, was taken to the Albertville City Jail. Police say someone called them about a minivan traveling on Highway 431 with a large cardboard box on the roof. A child was inside the box.
Officers stopped the van on Highway 431 near Tyson Foods. They found a 13-year-old girl inside the box. Police questioned Knott about why the child was inside the box, and she said “the box was too big to go inside the van and she would be able to hold it down if she was inside the box.”
Police then asked Knott if they thought the child was safe in this position, on top of the minivan. She replied, saying “the box was tied to the van with a clothes hanger.”Source: www.whnt.com
