The caller shared what details she could make out of the car and its location. Police officers soon identified landmarks from the stream and found her driving her car on Carpenters Way with a flat front tire.
When they tried to initiate a traffic stop, Beall hit a curb and didn’t brake after the fact. Beall was tested with a breathalyzer, charged with a DUI and then transported to the Polk County Jail.
