DANVILLE, Va. – A star of the TV show Moonshiners has been charged with public intoxication.

According to WDBJ, police in Danville announced Tuesday they had arrested Steven Ray Tickle, who goes by Tickle on the show, at a convenience store last Thursday.

Police received a report of a man sitting in the parking lot of Charley’s Stop and Shop drinking, and they saw Tickle with an open container and smelling of alcohol.

The 35-year-old Tickle was released from the Danville City Jail later that day. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. A spokesman for Discovery Channel, which airs the show, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.

“Moonshiners” follows people making the illegal brew. The show’s website describes Tickle as “a hard working still hand who loves moonshine.”
