The Lakeland woman who broadcast herself on Pericope driving drunk won't be spending time in Jail.

Last October, Whitney Marie Beall, 23, of Lakeland, was arrested and charged with a DUI. 

Beall was seen world-wide driving drunk.

Periscope users called The Lakeland Police to report Beall.

One caller told a dispatcher, "She's really drunk. She just hit something. She might be driving with a flat tire. She's in a Toyota".

Messages were sent to the driver via Periscope asking Beall to stop driving and to pull over. According to authorities, Beall recorded 7 videos that night.

"I'm (expletive) drunk and this is horrible. I don't even know where the next gas station is. This is horrible guys," Beall said in the video.

Beall was eventually arrested after she failed a field sobriety test and refused a breathalyzer test.

According to Beall’s lawyer, Lee Cohen, a deal was reached last week.

She pleaded no contest and was sentenced to 12 months of probation, 6 months license suspension, 150 hours of community service, alcohol treatment and must attend a MADD Impact panel.  She is also banned from bars.
