Only on 31 : Mother, Daughter Accused in Child Endangerment Speak Out:

Jackie Denise Knott of Boaz, Alabama was arrested in Albertville, AL when police pulled her over after discovering that her 13-year-old daughter was riding in a cardboard box on top of her van. When questioned by police Knott said that the box wouldn’t fit in her van and that the box was tied down with a clothes hanger. You know when I think of tools used to fasten things to the roof of a vehicle I usually go with bungee cords or rope or in a pinch duct tape not a clothes hanger and definitely not with a teenage girl holding it down.

However Knott and her daughter spoke out about the incident. Knott’s daughter claims that it was her idea and not to blame her mom.

sorry kid, but ultimatelty responsibility lies with your mom. If it was your idea then your mom showed bad judgment by listening to a 13-year-old girl and putting your life in jeopardy.
