Police eventually found Whitney Beall, 23, and charged her with driving under the influence.

“I am…drunk,” she said at one point in the video, swearing.

Periscope users sent her messages on Saturday night imploring her to stop driving before she hurt someone.

No-one was hurt in the incident, police said.

Ms Beall said on the video that she had a flat tyre and did not know where she was. Periscope viewers helped police pinpoint Ms Beall’s location after they spotted local landmarks in the background.

Her attorney entered a Not Guilty plea at arraignment.
