DIXON (WREX)- Dixon Police say a woman is arrested after she allegedly had her two daughters ride inside an empty pool on the roof of her Audi SUV.

Police say around 3:07 p.m. they received a call from a concerned citizen about an Audi Q5 driving north on the Peoria Avenue Bridge with kids inside of a pool while the pool was on top of the SUV.

Police pulled the SUV over and spoke to Jennifer A. Janus Yeager, of Dixon, who was driving the SUV.

Police say Yeager drove into town to inflate the pool at a friend’s house and had her two daughters ride inside of the empty pool to hold it down on the drive home.

Yeager was arrested for two counts of endangering the life or health of a child, two counts of reckless conduct and failure to secure a passenger between 8 and 16.

She was taken to the Dixon Police Department and posted bond.
