And the Darwin Award goes to…
A 23 year old Florida woman took stupidity to the next level Saturday night when she decided to drive drunk and live-stream the entire experience. Using the social media app Periscope, Whitney Marie Beall relayed to viewers over and over ago that she was super drunk as many begged her to stop.
Beall could be heard slurring her words horribly during the profanity laced video in which she repeatedly declared that I am drunk beyond belief people. Thanks to a few of concerned individuals watching the shocking video who reached out to local law enforcement, Beall was located by authorities and subsequently arrested for driving under the influence.
local police were eventually able to pinpoint her location after downloading the smartphone application and using local landmarks to determine where she was.
Theyre like whats periscope. Luckily, one of our younger officers was able to figure it out, said Sgt. Gary Gross, Lakeland Police spokesman, according to WTSP-TV.
When officers arrived on the scene they saw Beall hit a curb with her 2015 Toyota Carolla, police said in a statement. As they approached her vehicle, officers said they could smell alcohol. After failing field sobriety tests, she was arrested and charged for driving under the influence.
Gross said hes never seen anything like it.
You hear her saying shes drunk, he said, according to WTSP. I got to tell you I was a little shocked. After 30 years of law enforcement I hadnt seen anything like this before.
Warning: Strong language
I am drunk on South Florida Avenue…
