Woman charged for having child ride in box atop van

ALBERTVILLE, AL - A Marshall County woman is in the city jail here for having her 13-year-old daughter ride in a cardboard box atop her van.

Albertville Police spokesman Sgt. Jamie Smith said Jackie Denise Knott, 37, of Albertville was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Smith said the child was turned over to a relative.


Officers stopped the van on U.S. 431 and asked Knott why the child was riding atop her vehicle. "The box was too big to go inside the van, and she would be able to hold it down if she was inside the box," Smith said the woman told police.

When asked about the child's safety, Smith said Knott told the officers that she had the box secured to the van with a clothes hanger.
