In the top Shakopee Patch story of 2012, an Edina woman was charged with child endangerment after she allegedly forced her nephew to ride home from Valleyfair in the trunk of her car.
The woman allegedly told her nephew to ride in the trunk after he became wet from water rides at Valleyfair because she did not want her car's leather seats to get wet.
Commenters debated whether or not a ride in a car trunk was a child safety issue.
