Mom accused of tying son, plastic pool to roof of minivan”

Amber Schmunk, a 28-year-old mother in Wisconsin, is accused of having her 9-year-old son hold down a plastic pool to the top of her van as she drove down the road. She's now been charged with a felony.

Amber Schmunk, 28, of Fredonia was charged earlier this month for the September 9 incident, which started after officers received a call reporting a child on top of a vehicle holding down a plastic pool, according to the Ozaukee Press. She told police that she didn't think it was a big deal because he was only up there for "maybe 20 (to) 30 seconds".

"As a grandparent right now, I mean, I know the kids have to be strapped in".

According to WTMJ-TV, Saukville police received a call on Saturday afternoon about a child riding on top of a auto.

Schmunk allegedly told authorities she had picked up a molded plastic pool at another house, but didn't have enough room inside the minivan.

When officers confronted Schmunk last month, she stated she had no way to secure the pool. Schmunk later told police she did strap the boy down inside the pool.

Schmunk also said it was perfectly safe because she made sure the child was strapped to the auto, and her father let her do things like that when she was a kid.

No one came to the door at Schmunk's home or her sister's home for comment Tuesday, October 31st. She faces 10 years behind bars.

Schmunk is due in court on November 14.
