ABOVE VIDEO (Today.com): Whitney Beall, 23, was arrested by police in Lakeland, Florida, on Oct. 9 after she used the Periscope app to live stream video of herself on social media going to bars and then getting behind the wheel to drive home. While broadcasting herself, she said, “I’m driving home drunk, let’s see if I get a DUI. I don’t think I will.”
Two viewers of the Periscope stream called 911, resulting in police downloading the app and watching her video to pinpoint her location using landmarks. It took officers about 20 minutes after the calls to track down Beall, pull her over and administer sobriety tests that resulted in the DUI charge.
