Drunk woman driving was arrested with help of Periscope app users


Multiple Periscope viewers called 911 to report the incident, the police said. The only information about vehicle that police obtained said it was a Toyota. “This made locating the intoxicated driver more difficult for officers searching the surrounding area and with nothing more to go on other than the make of the car,” the olice said. Because Lakeland Police Department does not provide officers with access to Periscope as an authorized software tool one officer utilized  personal account in an effort to locate the driver who was eastbound on Carpenters Way. Whitney Marie Beall was charged with driving under the influence and  was transported to the Polk County Jail. The incident left no injuries
