Here's a shocker ... "Moonshiners" star Tickle -- who makes a living distilling blindingly high-proof alcohol -- was arrested last week for public intoxication.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, Steven Ray Tickle was popped in Danville, Virginia last Thursday afternoon after a police officer discovered him boozing alone in his car, which was parked at a convenience store parking lot.

According to police, the officer approached the car and smelled alcohol coming from the vehicle.

The officer says he attempted to make arrangements for someone to pick Tickle up and take him home, but to no avail. The officer subsequently placed Tickle under arrest for being drunk in public.

35-year-old Tickle was taken to Danville City Jail and was released later that day. Attempts to reach Tickle for comment were unsuccessful.

Wonder if tickle is somehow related to the boo boo clan. Maybe a second cousin to poodle. I don't know but it seems like all these inbred rednecks are all related somehow

Tickle is now in a pickle. If he doesn't watch out in jail he will have a pickle where it doesn't tickle.

I thought it was legal down there. Every episode we see him hammered and driving.

I'd be surprised if this guy reaches 40.
So sad no one would come take him home because he needs an intervention. How's that going to happen if no one cares enough to give him a ride?
Unless he was already intervened and they said they would no longer enable him... unlikely but possible.
