Mrs. A. Janus Yeager, 49, of Dixon, Illinois, was arrested this summer as she motored toward home with an inflated kiddie pool on the roof of her SUV.

CBS2 Chicago reports that Dixon police officers pulled Yeager over after being alerted that there were two children in the pool, riding on top of the car.

Yeager told police she took the pool to a friend’s house to inflate it, then had her daughters ride inside it “to hold it down on their drive home.” 

Yeager was charged with two counts of endangering the health or life of a child and two counts of reckless conduct.

Mrs. Yeager obviously cares for her children- she thought of the pool as a treat, after all. But this is still one of dumbest stunts we’ve reported on this year.
