LAKELAND, Fla. – A 23-year-old Florida woman was arrested after allegedly driving drunk and live-streaming herself behind the wheel.

According to FOX 13, a viewer called 911 saying a girl was drunken driving in north Lakeland. The viewer said he couldn’t provide dispatchers with the girl’s exact location, but said that he was watching the video on live-stream.

That’s when a police officer used a personal Periscope account to find 23-year-old Whitney Beall.

Officers spotted her driving a Toyota Corolla with a flat left front tire.

To track her previous movements, they simply had to go to her Periscope account.
