Student reveals "devastating" effect of her live-tweeted drinking arrest

Samantha Goudie was dubbed ‘Vodka Samm’ after her own drunken tweeting of her arrest.

AMERICAN STUDENT Samantha Goudie made headlines last month as “Vodka Samm” after she registered a .341 BAC and live-tweeted her arrest.

At the time, she seemed to show little remorse for her actions — constantly retweeting people’s praises from her quickly growing Twitter account — before abruptly going silent, deleting her handle and disappearing from social media.

In a new video interview with the Daily Iowan, Goudie reveals that her experiences had a much harsher effect on her than anyone realised, calling it “devastating” and “embarrassing.” She reveals that she had previously experienced depression and an eating disorder, and was hospitalised last year for several months.

“I didn’t come to college to drink and be ‘Vodka Samm,’” she says. “I was completely embarrassed of the whole situation.”
