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.

Duh!! He had to taste his product to make sure it is way over-proof. He can't just be selling it to folks without the taste test...lol

This dude's a drunk bum. That Moonshiners show only glorifies the making of alcohol. Who cares.

cop is lying. moonshine has no odor at all unless its aged in a barrel. If he was only drinking moonshine, and although he should not be driving, the cop is still lying

I'm more surprised that his last name is purportedly "Tickle" for real. I always pondered while watching the show how he got that nickname, but I feared I did NOT want to know. I guess this explains THAT conundrum. Why he didn't go inside an establishment or his home is one I cannot.
