'Moonshiners' star faces public intoxication charge
DANVILLE, Va. (AP) — A star of the TV show "Moonshiners" has been arrested for public intoxication.
Police in Danville announced Tuesday that they had arrested Steven Ray Tickle, known on the show by his surname, at a convenience store on Thursday.
Police say they 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.
Tickle, 35, 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.
