Woman Uses Periscope While Driving Drunk
A woman in Florida Periscoped her drive home and found herself quickly arrested. Periscope is an app that allows people to broadcast whatever they are doing over a live video stream on Twitter. At first, hearing of someone periscoping during their drive home brings to mind pirates, ships and maidens. Chances are high that Whitney Marie Beall, 23, wishes her tale was fictional.
Beall, titled her Periscope stream “girl driving drunk.” You can clearly hear Beall in the video say, “I am driving as you guys know, but I think I’m, I think I’m on a flat tire which is horrible.” Beall then begins to shout, but not at another person. Beall, instead, can be heard shouting at the red light she must stop for. If all of this was not enough, “The Hills” by The Weekend is lending the background track to the now-trending video.
One quick-thinking cop utilized his own Twitter account to watch Beall and figure out where she was, based on landmarks seen in the background. When police caught up with Beall, they noted that not only was she allegedly under the influence but she was, indeed, driving on a flat tire.
