Jackie Knott Had A Load To Think About - Charged With Driving Van Around With 13-Year-Old Daughter On Top
Albertville, Alabama (The Weekly Vice) - Jackie Denise Knott, a 37-year-old Alabama woman was arrested Sunday after driving a minivan around with her 13-year-old daughter on top.
According to Albertville Police, officers responded to a call Sunday morning of a minivan traveling down U.S. 431 with a large box mounted on it's top. Inside the box was Knott's 13-year-old daughter.
When officers caught up with Knott, they pulled her over and asked why a teen was riding on the top of her van. She answered by explaining that the box was too big to go inside and that her daughter's weight would help hold it down atop the van.
When police pointed out that carrying a kid around on top of a moving vehicle was unsafe, Knott reportedly replied by insisting the box was well secured.
"She told officers she had the box tied to the roof with a wire clothes hanger," said Jamie Smith of the Albertville Police Dept."
Knott was booked into the Albertville Jail on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child . She was released after posting a $500 bond.
