LAKELAND, Fla., Oct. 12 (UPI) -- A Florida woman was arrested and thrown in jail over the weekend, allegedly for driving home from a party drunk -- which she opted to broadcast live over the Internet.
Whitney Beall, 23, left the party Friday night and got into her vehicle. According to police, she was intoxicated and should not have been driving.
Apparently, she then used her phone to live stream her drive home via the broadcasting service Periscope.
"I'm (expletive) drunk," she said on the broadcast, audibly slurring some of her words.
"I think uh, a flat tire. This is horrible," she added.
In a Facebook post, Authorities said Beall stated multiple times during the broadcast that she had a flat tire, that she didn't know where she was and that she was drunk.
Police said Beall failed a sobriety test and was arrested and booked on a drunk driving charge.
Witnesses who saw the live broadcast called police and clued them in to the Periscope stream, WFLA reported.
"Within minutes we found her driving, flat front tire, she hit the curb again and it was just obvious from that she was intoxicated," Lakeland Police Sgt. Gary Gross said. "She went through the tests, she failed and went to jail."
No one was hurt in this particular incident.
Beall reportedly told WFLA Monday that driving drunk was a mistake and that she had learned a lesson.
