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.

Smith said police received a call Sunday morning of a minivan traveling on U.S. 431 with a large cardboard box on top with a child inside. 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.

C’mon…the kid was 13-years old, she probably loved it. When I was 13 I always wanted the opportunity to do some teen wolf-style surfing. And what was this woman supposed to do? The box wouldn’t fit in the car. How could she risk losing the box when she had a perfectly good daughter to hold it on there for her? Easy decision in my mind.
