A young woman has been arrested after live streaming herself driving her car while drunk.

Whitney Beall (23) appears to be under the influence in the video which she streamed via Periscope.

Driving her Toyota Camry around the Lakeland, Florida area, Beall can be heard slurring her words while attempting to find a garage.

She complains that she thinks she has a flat tyre and constantly repeats that she is drunk.
