The Woman Who Famously Live-Streamed Herself Driving Drunk Avoids Jail, Gets Probation
Woman who live-streamed herself driving drunk gets probation, but no jail time, authorities said.
A Florida woman who live-streamed herself driving while drunk will not face jail time after pleading no contest to driving under the influence, authorities said.
Whitney Beall, 23, became an Internet sensation in October after posting video of herself driving home while she told the camera "I'm ****ing drunk."
“I am drunk on South Florida Avenue because I’m a drunk person,” Beall said on Periscope, a live-streaming app. Dozens of people called police to report the video. Callers also told police how to use the application to locate the woman.
“I am super drunk in the USA and the light is red,” she said.
Lakeland police officers pulled over her Toyota after she twice ran over a curb, according to the department. She failed a sobriety test and was arrested, police said.
In a plea agreement reached last week, Beall will serve a year's probation, 10 days of weekend work release, 150 hours of community service, and must receive alcohol treatment and evaluations, authorities said, according to WFLA-TV.
She also is barred from drinking alcohol and entering bars.
