Jackie Denise Knott, 37, really liked that box. She was arrested after having her 13-year-old daughter ride on top of her minivan in a box on the roof. She assured officers that the daughter was safe . . . she secured the box with a hanger.
Knott was stopped in Albertville, Alabama and explained that she needed her daughter to hold down the box, which would not fit in the car.
She has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child and released on a $500 bond.
We have seen the rise in teens car surfing, but this is a case with parental consent. Presumably there will be a hearing on whether the minor should remain under Knott’s care.
