A Facebook Live video was obtained from Ryan Stiles' profile shows a man driving a Jeep and drinking what appears to be liquor. The video shows he also came close to hitting several beach goers.
Police sirens can be heard in the video. It appears police followed him for a short time before being taken into custody.
